Event Management

This section describes available logging and SMP configuration parameters. Included are permitted values and, if applicable, guidance for configuring related parameters.

Logging Parameters

Use the following parameters to configure logging settings for your system.

device.syslog.autoTransfer.customFolderName

Lets you specify a folder name for manual log transfers.

Set if you configured device.syslog.autoTransfer.folderNameOption="Custom".

String (0-64)

Log_archive (default)

device.syslog.autoTransfer.folderNameOption

Specifies the folder name for log transfers.

SystemNameAndTimestamp (default) - Folder name is the system name and the timestamp of the log transfer. For example, if the system name is Marketing, the folder name might be marketing_<date_and_time>.

Timestamp - Folder name is the timestamp of the log transfer (e.g., <yyyyMMddhhmmssSSS>).

Custom - Lets you specify a folder name for manual log transfers. Set device.syslog.autoTransfer.customFolderName.

device.syslog.autoTransfer.frequency

Specifies when logs are transferred.

Manual (default) - The transfer starts when you select the Start Log Transfer button, which is visible only on the local interface. If the log fills before being transferred, new events overwrite the oldest events.

AutoAtThreshold - The transfer starts automatically when the limit set for device.syslog.autoTransfer.threshold is reached.

device.syslog.autoTransfer.threshold

Reaching the log storage threshold percentage you configure here creates a log entry and automatically transfers logs to an external storage device if device.syslog.autoTransfer.frequency="AutoAtThreshold".

Off (default)

90

device.syslog.enable

Specifies whether remote logging is enabled. Enabling this causes the system to send each log message to the specified server in addition to logging it locally.

Remote logging encryption is supported using TLS. If you're using UDP or TCP transport, Poly recommends remote logging only on secure, local networks.

False (default)

True

device.syslog.level

Sets the minimum log level of messages stored in the system's flash memory. The level is the same for local and remote logging.

"Debug" logs all messages, while "Critical" logs the fewest number of messages.

It's recommended you use the default value.

Debug

Info

Warning

Error

Critical (default)

device.syslog.serverName

Specifies the server address and port. If the port isn't specified, a default destination port is used. The default port is determined by how device.syslog.transport is configured:

UDP: 514

TCP: 601

TLS: 6514

The address and port can be specified in the following formats:

IPv4 address: 192.0.2.0:<port>, where <port> is the elective destination port number in the 1-65535 range.

FQDN: logserverhost.company.com:<port>, where <por> is the elective destination port number in the 1-65535 range.
