Logging for SRC Components Overview
SRC components and applications generate event messages that you can save in logs—either by writing the messages to text files or by using the system log facilities. You can use these logs to monitor the SRC components and troubleshoot problems.
Each SRC component has its own logging configuration. For example, the license server, the NIC, the SAE, and SNMP each have logging configuration. The C Series Controller includes a system log server that you can configure to manage messages generated on that platform. You can use the CLI and the C-Web interface to configure logging on a C Series Controller and to configure the system log server on a C Series Controller.
