CLI Reference

log syslog-policy

Use this command to configure a connection to one or more Syslog servers. Each policy can specify connections for up to three Syslog servers. The log syslogd configuration uses the policy to define the specific Syslog server or servers on which log messages are stored. For details, see log syslogd.

To use this command, your administrator account’s access control profile must have either w or rw permission to the loggrp area. For details, see Permissions.

Syntax

config log syslog-policy

edit "<policy_name>"

config syslog-server-list

edit <entry_index>

set csv {enable | disable}

set port <port_int>

set server "<syslog_ipv4>"

set tls {enable | disable}

set cus-fields <cus-fields_name>

end

next

end

Variable Description Default
