    Hello all, I need assistance configuring syslog to work correctly with a trial software called EventLog Analyzer. I followed the instructions here:

    [i]enable syslog
    configure syslog add [i] vr

    Hello David.

    here is my example config which works fine.



    configure syslog add 10.0.10.57:514 vr VR-Default local0

    configure log target syslog 10.0.10.57:514 vr VR-Default local0 from 10.0.10.55

    enable log target syslog 10.0.10.57:514 vr VR-Default local0


    I think you also need to configure the log target syslog.

    Firmware 22.2.1.5

    Here my lab X460G2 syslog settings...

    configure syslog add 172.24.24.110:514 vr VR-Mgmt local0
    enable log target syslog 172.24.24.110:514 vr VR-Mgmt local0
    configure log target syslog 172.24.24.110:514 vr VR-Mgmt local0 filter DefaultFilter severity Info
    configure log target syslog 172.24.24.110:514 vr VR-Mgmt local0 match Any
    configure log target syslog 172.24.24.110:514 vr VR-Mgmt local0 format timestamp seconds date mm/dd/yyyy event-name none tag-id tag-name

    The question is what kind of messages are you looking for ?

    I guess I expected more that just time updates, such as a port going down because of a computer reboot. Maybe I should be patient or see if I can reboot a device connected to a switch that has my syslog configuration. I'll also edit the config just in case.

    I appreciate the info!

    I guess I wasn't being patient as I am now seeing changes. It seems like there is a delayed response in logs but I'm not sure if that's natural or if there's a way to change how often syslogs are sent to the server.

    Hello all, just a follow up...4 months later lol

    What reason would I choose a different severity level? I also see debug-verbose, warning, and other options.

    I want to be sure I get all the information the switch has to offer.
