source-address (Next Gen Services Service-Set Remote System Logging)


Hierarchy Level


Specify the IP address of the source for Next Gen Services system log messages.

Best Practice:

The syslog source address can be any arbitrary IP address. It does not have to be an IP address that is assigned to the device. Rather, this IP address is used on the syslog collector to identify the syslog source. The best practice is to configure the source address as the IP address of the interface that the traffic is sent out on.
