Did the system log get cleared on purpose?

Our system log only goes back three days. On the cleanup parameters, it should hold seven. Is there a way that this could have been manually cleared to that point, either accidentally or on purpose?

If CLEANUP is active on your iSeries, the number of days specified (in your case 7 days) is what the system uses to determine any history files over that number. It will delete the files 8 days or more old. Some one must have removed the files from your system manually in one way or another. I would suggest that you keep an eye on this to determine what might be happening. If you have auditing running on your iSeries, that would help find the culprit!
