Logging Best Practice - NVRAM vs Syslog

Logging Best Practice - NVRAM vs Syslog

New Contributor III

Hi Community,

A topic that i think will generate alot of discussion.

What level of logging to implement at the core, dist and edge and does it differ for NVRAM vs a Syslog server?

The nvram for logging on EXOS switches is small, and is not what you see in show log, nvram is what you see in show log messages nvram and these are the ones that remain after a reboot.

ideally you should have a centralized syslog server like for example XIQ Site Engine, as normal log entries will vanish after some time or after a reboot.

Thanks Oscar.

Any recommendations on logging severity on each log type (NVRAM, Memory, Console Syslog)?
