Important: Tier options do not have unlimited processing power, memory allotment, or disk I/O speeds. In addition to storage per month, your deployment size's impact on any of these factors will influence which tier option is right for your environment. AT&T Cybersecurity recommends pre-deployment sizing discussions with your sales representative to help select the right tier for you.

Raw Log Data

Raw log data is data that has been forwarded through your sensors. USM Anywhere stores this data and enables you to extract raw log data for audit purposes or further forensic analysis.

Important: AT&T Cybersecurity recommends that you download the raw log data on a monthly basis.

When requesting raw log files, the date range cannot exceed 30 days. To download more than 30 days' worth of data, you must make multiple requests. Refrain from making all requests at the same time, which may tie up your USM Anywhere instance. You can make 2 or 3 requests, wait for the emails to arrive, and then make your next requests.
