Nortel Application Switch


Nortel Application Switches integrate routing and switching by forwarding traffic at layer 2 speed by using layer 4-7 information.

The Nortel Application Switch DSM for JSA accepts events by using syslog. JSA records all relevant status and network condition events. Before you configure a Nortel Application Switch device in JSA, you must configure your device to send syslog events to JSA.

To configure the device to send syslog events to JSA:

  1. Log in to the Nortel Application Switch command-line interface (CLI).
  2. Type the following command:


  3. At the prompt, type the IP address of your JSA:

    Enter new syslog host: <IP address>

    Where <IP address> is the IP address of your JSA.

  4. Apply the configuration:


  5. After the new configuration is applied, save your configuration:


  6. Type y at the prompt to confirm that you want to save the configuration to flash.

    See the following example:

    Confirm saving to FLASH [y/n]: y

    New config successfully saved to FLASH

    Next you will need to configure JSA to receive events from a Nortel Application Switch:

  7. Configure the log source in JSA. From the Log Source Type list, select the Nortel Application Switch option.
