Unable to view last deleted items information

Problem

I am unable to view 'Last Deleted Items', 'Last Modified Items' reports in Vyapin's SharePoint Farm Reporter. What could be the reason?

Cause

SharePoint Farm Reporter retrieves information from Change Log files for certain reports. This requires Change Log setting to be configured for the target web application(s) in the SharePoint Central Administration site. 

The reported problem is most likely to occur if this option is not configured properly.
