Configuring syslog on 3COM Super Stack 2 Switch 9100

In addition to maintaining an internal log, the switch supports remote logging by way of the UNIX syslog host facility. Up to four syslogs may be configured. To enable remote logging, do the following:

  • Configure the syslog host to accept and log messages.
  • Enable remote logging by using the following command:

    enable syslog

  • Configure remote logging by using the following command:

    config syslog [add | delete] <ipaddress> <facility> {<priority>}

Specify the following:
  • ipaddress - The IP address of the syslog host.
  • facility - The syslog facility level for local use. Options include local0 through local7.
  • priority - Filters the log to display message with the selected priority or higher (more critical). Priorities include (in order) critical, emergency, alert, error, warning, notice, info, and debug. If not specified, only critical priority messages are sent to the syslog host.
