Download archived Logs
Archive and download old logs in tgz format like in UTM: Logging and Reporting > View Log Files > Archived Log Files.
Well this is a good idea, I also hope there is something like Sophos UTM's live log. So we can use it for troubleshooting. Also to allow people to easily find what type of logs there is.

The method described in the KB article relates to system and debug logs and will not include most of the information shown in the UI Log Viewer.
You can download the logs from the GUI to a xls file BUT it only seems to get a few of the records. Seems like it gets 100 rows and stops.
How could it be, that there is no useful way to download the LOG-Files from XG Firewalls.
The only way i could find is described here: https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/123337
Is it to much work to bring basic functionality to the utterly slow UI?
