syslog (Services Service Set)


Hierarchy Level


Configure generation of system log messages for the service set. The system log information is passed to the kernel for logging in the /var/log directory. These settings override the values defined at the [edit interfaces interface-name services-options] hierarchy level; for more information on configuring those values, see Configuring System Logging for Services Interfaces.


Starting with Junos OS release 14.1X55, 14.2R5, 15.1R3, and 16.1R1, for multiservices (ms-) interfaces, you cannot configure system logging for PCP and ALGs by including the pcp-logs and alg-logs statements at the [edit services service-set service-set-name syslog host hostname class] hierarchy level. An error message is displayed if you attempt to commit a configuration that contains the pcp-logs and alg-logs options to define system logging for PCP and ALGs for ms- interfaces.


The remaining statements are described separately.
