Extreme Stackable and Stand-alone Switches

 

The Extreme stackable and stand-alone switches DSM for JSA accepts events by using syslog.

JSA records all relevant events. Before you configure an Extreme stackable and stand-alone switches device in JSA, you must configure your device to forward syslog events.

To configure the device to forward syslog events to JSA:

  1. Log in to the Extreme stackable and stand-alone switch device.
  2. Type the following command:

    set logging server <index> [ip-addr <IP address>] [facility <facility>] [severity <severity>] [descr <description>] [port <port] [state <<enable | disable>>]

    Where:

    • <index> is the server table index number (1 - 8) for this server.

    • <IP address> is the IP address of the server you want to send syslog messages. You do not have to enter an IP address. If you do not define an IP address, an entry in the Syslog server table is created with the specified index number, and a message is displayed indicating that there is no assigned IP address.

    • <facility> is a syslog facility. Valid values are local0 to local7. You do not have to enter a facility value. If the value is not specified, the default value that is configured with the set logging default command is applied.

    • <description> is a description of the facility/server. You do not have to enter a description.

    • <port> is the default UDP port that the client uses to send messages to the server. If not specified, the default value that is configured with the set logging default command is applied. You do not have to enter a port value.

    • <<enable | disable>> enables or disables this facility/server configuration. You do not have to choose an option. If the state is not specified, it does not default to either <enable> or <disable>.

    • <severity> is the server severity level that the server will log messages. The valid range is 1 - 8. If not specified, the default value that is configured with the set logging default command is applied. You do not have to input a severity value. The following are valid values:

    • 1: Emergencies (system is unusable)

    • 2: Alerts (immediate action needed)

    • 3: Critical conditions

    • 4: Error conditions

    • 5: Warning conditions

    • 6: Notifications (significant conditions)

    • 7: Informational messages

    • 8: Debugging message

  3. You can now ready to configure the log source in JSA.

    To configure JSA to receive events from an Extreme stackable and stand-alone switch device:
