    [edit system syslog]

    Release Information

    Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 12.3.


    Enable a syslog server for a routing instance on a Junos device, so that compute nodes and virtual machines (VMs) in a connected App Engine can send log messages to it. This allows log messages generated by all of the compute nodes and VMs in the App Engine infrastructure to be collected in one place. Note that a syslog server can be enabled only when an App Engine is configured.

    To send log messages from a compute node or VM to the syslog server, edit the /etc/syslog.conf file on the compute node or VM, and specify the facility and priority of the log messages to be sent, as well as the IP address of the management interface on the Junos device where the syslog server is enabled. See the man page for syslog.conf for more information.
