Cisco Wireless Services Module

 

You can integrate a Cisco Wireless Services Module (WiSM) device with JSA.

A Cisco WiSM DSM for JSA accepts events by using syslog. Before you can integrate JSA with a Cisco WiSM device, you must configure Cisco WiSM to forward syslog events.

Configuring Cisco WiSM to Forward Events

You can configure Cisco WiSM to forward syslog events to JSA.

Take the following steps to configure Cisco WiSM to forward syslog events:

  1. Log in to the Cisco Wireless LAN Controller user interface.
  2. Click Management >Logs >Config.

    The Syslog Configuration window is displayed.

  3. In the Syslog Server IP Address field, type the IP address of the JSA host that receives the syslog messages.
  4. Click Add.
  5. Using the Syslog Level list, set the severity level for filtering syslog messages to the syslog servers by using one of the following severity levels:
    • Emergencies Severity level 0

    • Alerts Severity level 1 (Default)

    • Critical Severity level 2

    • Errors Severity level 3

    • Warnings Severity level 4

    • Notifications Severity level 5

    • Informational Severity level 6

    • Debugging Severity level 7

    If you set a syslog level, only those messages whose severity level is equal to or less than the selected syslog level are sent to the syslog server. For example, if you set the syslog level to Warnings (severity level 4), only those messages whose severity is 0 - 4 are sent to the syslog servers.

  6. From the Syslog Facility list, set the facility for outgoing syslog messages to the syslog server by using one of the following facility levels:
    • Kernel Facility level 0

    • User Process Facility level 1

    • Mail Facility level 2

    • System Daemons Facility level 3

    • Authorization Facility level 4

    • Syslog Facility level 5 (default value)

    • Line Printer Facility level 6

    • USENET Facility level 7

    • Unix-to-Unix Copy Facility level 8

    • Cron Facility level 9

    • FTP Daemon Facility level 11

    • System Use 1 Facility level 12

    • System Use 2 Facility level 13

    • System Use 3 Facility level 14

    • System Use 4 Facility level 15

    • Local Use 0 Facility level 16

    • Local Use 1 Facility level 17

    • Local Use 2 Facility level 18

    • Local Use 3 Facility level 19

    • Local Use 4 Facility level 20

    • Local Use 5 Facility level 21

    • Local Use 6 Facility level 22

    • Local Use 7 Facility level 23

  7. Click Apply.
  8. From the Buffered Log Level and the Console Log Level lists, select the severity level for log messages sent to the controller buffer and console by using one of the following severity levels:
    • Emergencies Severity level 0

    • Alerts Severity level 1

    • Critical Severity level 2

    • Errors Severity level 3 (default value)

    • Warnings Severity level 4

    • Notifications Severity level 5

    • Informational Severity level 6

    • Debugging Severity level 7

    If you set a logging level, only those messages whose severity is equal to or less than that level are logged by the controller. For example, if you set the logging level to Warnings (severity level 4), only those messages whose severity is 0 - 4 are logged.

  9. Select the File Info check box if you want the message logs to include information about the source file. The default value is enabled.
  10. Select the Proc Info check box if you want the message logs to include process information. The default value is disabled.
  11. Select the Trace Info check box if you want the message logs to include trace back information. The default value is disabled.
  12. Click Apply to commit your changes.
  13. Click Save Configuration to save your changes.

    The configuration is complete. The log source is added to JSA as Cisco WiSM events are automatically discovered. Events that are forwarded by Cisco WiSM are displayed on the Log Activity tab of JSA.

Syslog Log Source Parameters for Cisco WiSM

If JSA does not automatically detect the log source, add a Cisco Wireless Services Module (WiSM) log source on the JSA Console by using the syslog protocol.

When using the syslog protocol, there are specific parameters that you must use.

The following table describes the parameters that require specific values to collect syslog events from Cisco Wireless Services Module (WiSM):

Log Source Identifier

Type the IP address or host name for the log source.

The identifier helps you determine which events came from your Cisco Wireless Services Module (WiSM) device.
