config system archive

Interactive command to specify how often the Uplogix Local Manager archives session, alarm, alert and audit data to the Uplogix Control Center, and how many archives are stored locally during an extended inband network outage (up to 100).

Much of the statistical data the collected by the Uplogix system is device statistics and logs used to make autonomous decisions. This data is available for export if desired.

The archive process rolls off this information to the server for long-term analysis and reporting.
