Logging[edit | edit source]

The Logging section is used to configure how and where the device stores system log data. The system log is a file that contains information on various system related events and is useful to engineers for troubleshooting the device.

Refer to the figure and table below for information on the device's Logging page.

Field Value Description
System log buffer size integer; default: 2048 System log buffer size in kibibytes (KiB).
External system log server ip; default: none IP address of an external server that will be used to store device logs.
External system log server port integer [0..65535]; default: none TCP/UDP port number of the external log server.
External system log server protocol UDP | TCP; default: UDP Communication protocol used by the external log server.
Write system log to file file path; default: none Specifies where the system log file will be stored.
Log output level Debug | Info | Notice | Warning | Error | Critical | Alert | Emergency; default: Debug Specifies the information output level of the system log.
  • Debug - contains basic information that is diagnostically helpful to most people (i.e., not just engineers).
  • Info - general useful information (e.g., configuration changes, starts and stops of services, etc.)
  • Notice - conditions that are not error conditions, but that may require special handling.
  • Warning - anything that can potentially cause application oddities, but for which the system is automatically recovering from (e.g., retrying an operation, missing secondary data, etc.)
  • Error - errors that are fatal to the operation, but not the service or application (can't open a required file, missing data, etc.) Solving these types of errors will usually require user intervention.
  • Critical - critical conditions, device errors.
  • Alert - a condition that must be corrected immediately.
  • Emergency - a panic condition, i.e., system is no longer usable.
Cron Log level Debug | Normal | Warning; default: Normal Specifies the information output level of the cron logs.
  • Normal - will log all debug messages.
  • Debug - will log command executions.
  • Warning - only logs error messages.
