Sending Log Messages to Syslog Servers
To configure the switch to send all log messages to a syslog server with an IP address of 172.16.21.67, use the following command:
CLI network-admin@switch > admin-syslog-create name log-all scope fabric host 172.16.21.76
To display the configuration use the admin-syslog-show command:
CLI network-admin@switch > admin-syslog-show
name    scope   host           port   message-format
-----   -----   ------------   ----   ---------------
log-all fabric  172.16.21.67   514    legacy
 
To specify sending the syslog messages in structured format, per RFC5424, add the message-format option to the configuration.
CLI network-admin@switch > admin-syslog-modify name log-all message-format structured
You can also modify the port that the service listens on to another port. More than one syslog listening service can be configured and Netvisor ONE sends appropriate syslog messages to each one.
By default, Netvisor ONE forwards all log messages to syslog servers. To filter the log messages, use the msg-level option to specify the severity or other options:
CLI network-admin@switch > admin-syslog-match-add syslog-name log-all name critical-msgs msg-level critical
You can modify syslog matching using the admin-syslog-match-modify command, or remove matching criteria using the admin-syslog-match-remove command.
To display the configuration, use the show command:
CLI network-admin@switch > admin-syslog-match-show
syslog-name       msg-level      name
log-all           critical       critical-msgs
