Cisco CatOS for Catalyst Switches

 

The Cisco CatOS for Catalyst Switches DSM for JSA accepts events by using syslog.

JSA records all relevant device events. Before you configure a Cisco CatOS device in JSA, you must configure your device to forward syslog events.

Configuring Syslog

Configuring your Cisco CatOS device to forward syslog events.

Take the following steps to configure your Cisco CatOS device to forward syslog events:

  1. Log in to your Cisco CatOS user interface.
  2. Type the following command to access privileged EXEC mode:

    enable

  3. Configure the system to timestamp messages:

    set logging timestamp enable

  4. Type the following command with the IP address of JSA:

    set logging server <IP address>

  5. Limit messages that are logged by selecting a severity level:

    set logging server severity <server severity level>

  6. Configure the facility level to be used in the message. The default is local7.

    set logging server facility <server facility parameter>

  7. Enable the switch to send syslog messages to the JSA.

    set logging server enable

    You are now ready to configure the log source in JSA.
