Issue/Introduction

Once you have configured the syslog server for PacketShaper, you are required to enable the services.

# set syslog add host:10.10.10.10 output:local4,4 port:514 datetime
Usage: setup syslog add host:<ipaddress> [output:<facility>,<level>] [port:<portnum>] [datetime]

#setup syslog state on

PacketShaper will send the following types of messages to the syslog server when set to warn level:

1. Login failed
2. Hard drive status
3. Measurement Engine status
4. Direct standby status
5. Plug-in status

If you set the level to 3 or lower, you will not receive any syslog messages.

Here is an example syslog message when a user logs in with an incorrect password:
