That is not backup, but a PDF report. This is a wrong way of storing the event data. ASM has a very limited space on its own internal disk for logs. It is a security device, not a log storage. The event log export is only intended to be used as an investigation report.

You should be sending your ASM event logs to a remote syslog server (e.g. Splunk/ArcSight/QRadar/LogRhythm/AlientVault whatever you are using in your company)

Not sure what you mean by "report" and 100 entries of what?

You can't back up just ASM - if it is enabled it will be backed up aong with LTM config inside your UCS file.
