You can use the reporting feature to view the log data from the statistics logs. You can choose a date range and time range for which you want to view the statistics data. You can also select one or more types of statistics that you want to view.
Statistic logs are used to report the following cumulative scan data:
Total number of files that are scanned, repaired, and quarantined and also the total megabytes scanned
Number of files rated as high, medium or low risk.
Number of infected files and the number of infected files that are repaired.
Number of viruses found and security risks detected by Insight
Types of violations that Symantec Protection Engine found by violation type
Number of malformed and encrypted containers
Total number of scanned and blocked URLs and the number of URL audits
You must enable logging to the statistics logs. After you enable logging to the statistics logs, you can use the statistics reporting feature to view the statistics.
You can obtain summary data from the local logs for a given period of time. For the reported period, you can review the total number of risks that were found and the total number of files that were repaired.
The default logging destination for Symantec Protection Engine is the local logs. The default location for the local logs on Solaris and Linux is /opt/SYMCScan/log. The default location for 32-bit Windows platform is C:\Program Files\Symantec\Scan Engine\log\ and C:\Program Files (x86)\Symantec\Scan Engine\log for 64-bit Windows platform. You can change the location of the logs.
The statistics do not represent a literal physical file count of the total number of files that have been scanned. This total includes not only the number of files but also the additional objects within the container files that were scanned. Some containers (such as MIME-encoded messages and Microsoft Office documents) have additional embedded objects. These embedded objects might not be files, but they might be scanned depending on the files that you have selected for scanning. The total does not include any objects within the container files that were not scanned because their extensions did not match those configured for scanning.
