Enable/disable logging to the memory buffer (default = disable).

Example

This example shows how to enable logging to memory for all events at the notification level and above. At this level of logging, only information and debug events will not be logged.

config system locallog memory

set severity notification

set status enable

end

locallog syslogd (syslogd2, syslogd3) setting

Use this command to configure the settings for logging to a syslog server. You can configure up to three syslog servers: syslogd, syslogd2 and syslogd3.

Syntax

config system locallog {syslogd | syslogd2 | syslogd3} setting

set csv {enable | disable}

set facility {alert | audit | auth | authpriv | clock | cron | daemon | ftp | kernel | local0 | local1 | local2 | local3 | local4 | local5 | local6 | local7 | lpr | mail | news | ntp | syslog | user | uucp}

set severity {emergency | alert | critical | error | warning | notification | information | debug}

set status {enable | disable}

set syslog-name <string>

end

Variable

Description

csv {enable | disable}

Enable/disable producing the log in comma separated value (CSV) format (default = disable).

If you do not enable CSV format the FortiAnalyzer unit produces space separated log files.

facility {alert | audit | auth | authpriv | clock | cron | daemon | ftp | kernel | local0 | local1 | local2 | local3 | local4 | local5 | local6 | local7 | lpr | mail | news | ntp | syslog | user | uucp}

Enter the facility type (default = local7).

The facility identifies the source of the log message to syslog. Change facility to distinguish log messages from different FortiAnalyzer units so you can determine the source of the log messages. local0 to local7 are reserved for local use.

severity {emergency | alert | critical | error | warning | notification | information | debug}

Select the logging severity level (default = notification).

The FortiAnalyzer unit logs all messages at and above the logging severity level you select.

status {enable | disable}

Enable/disable logging to the remote syslog server (default = disable).

syslog-name <string>

Enter the remote syslog server name.

Use the show command to display the current configuration if it has been changed from its default value:

show system locallog syslogd setting

Example

In this example, the logs are uploaded to a syslog server at IPv4 address 10.10.10.8. The FortiAnalyzer unit is identified as facility local0.

config system locallog syslogd setting

set facility local0

set server 10.10.10.8

set status enable

set severity information

end
