Hierarchy Level


Configure where log messages go. By default, all messages go to the /var/log directory on the Routing Engine. Enhancements to the existing infrastructure make debugging on the Multiservices PIC easier by giving the user the option of redirecting log messages. When the syslog destination statement is configured to redirect the log messages, you can use the set system syslog command, a command available in the native Junos OS CLI, to override the syslog settings made on the Multiservices PIC.

  • routing-engine—Forward log messages to the Routing Engine.
