This revision introduces the following features:

  1. Custom log file size for isf.log rotation enabling administrators to specify a certain size for the log file to reach before it is rotated by the endpoint.  The default size value for the log file is 4 MB.
  2. Romote.log: Tracks remote actions initiated in the iSheriff Cloud Dashboard Portal such as requesting a device to be scanned or requesting a device to update its Antivirus Signatures. This log file helps troubleshoot actions for such requests.

In order to configure custom log file size for isf.log, please use the following steps:


  • Start Notepad or Wordpad with "Run as Administrator" permissions.
  • Open the isf.local configuration file.
    • Windows 32-bit: C:\Program Files\CloudClient\isf.local
    • Windows 64-bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\CloudClient\isf.local
  • Go to the end of the file and add: logrotate_mb:<size_in_MB> where <size_in_MB> is the numerical value of the log file size.



The log file size (<size_in_MB> above) must be larger than 0 AND equal to or less than 1024.

  • Save file and restart the "Cloud Client Service".

Mac OSX:

  • Start Terminal.
  • Change Directory to Cloud Client App by typing: cd /Applications/Cloud

Upon using the sudo command, you will be prompted for a password.  Use root or administrator password to proceed.
