Enabling resource consumption logging in Symantec Protection Engine
The Resources page on the Symantec Protection Engine console displays the information about the resources used by Symantec Protection Engine. Symantec Protection Engine refreshes the console view on the Resources page every 5 seconds so that you receive up-to-date information. From version 7.0 onwards, the data from the Resources page can now be saved in log files for further analysis. Symantec Protection Engine captures the resources data every 5 seconds and logs it every one minute. Thus, every minute 12 rows are added to the log file. The resource consumption log files are saved in the default log directory as .rcl files.
