How much data does a Log Archive contain?
The default is one day worth of log data per archive file. This can be changed by contacting your service provider. Log archives start to be generated at the end of the retention period for the product.
Can the Retention Period be extended ?

How far back can I query log data in the dashboard?
You can query log data within the last 90 days, however please note that it may not be feasible to return all the results on a large data set. Always try and specify as many criteria as possible to narrow down your search. Some data sets have the ability to easily return millions of rows for a short period of time (Excel can only open files with less than 1M rows). Also consider Log Streaming as an option.
