Frequency of l2ctrld.log entries

We have a case open with TAC at this time, and they noticed when looking for LACP issues that our l2ctrld.log on a few firewalls have not updated in some time - some have entries in the last day, others have not had any updates for over a week. I have been trying to find confirmation on what all will trigger the l2ctrld daemon to add to this log; from what I can see in our logs, it looks like it updates when we have a failover or configuration change, and isn't something that is constantly updating.


Can anyone confirm or deny how often this should be updating?

Depends on your configuration. Outside of actual error messages and ports actually dropping in and out, you'd see frequent logging if you had passive-pre-negotiation enabled in an HA pair, but otherwise it's really not that chatty of a log file.
