A Syslog Search function provides a useful method of searching for syslog related information using an auto-populate feature based on previous searches.


You begin by entering an event, e.g., informational, notice or warning.


The syslog related information displayed in the graphical interface is updated with data from the search criteria and the filter information is highlighted in the filter bar.


Multiple searches populate the filter bar.


Filtering functions work in an identical manner as described under the Insight Analytics Packet Search & Filtering section.
