The Salesforce article on debug logs (currently found here) states that "System debug logs are retained for 24 hours. Monitoring debug logs are retained for seven days."

What is the difference between a System debug log and a monitoring debug log?

1 Answer 1


For system logs, Location is SystemLog. System logs are generated as part of system log monitoring, such as while you use Developer Console, and are visible only to you.

For monitoring logs, Location is Monitoring. Monitoring logs are generated when your org has active CLASS_TRACING or USER_DEBUG trace flags. These logs are visible to all your org’s admins.
