I have attached my syslog configuration .
but in my syslog i missed most of the logs .
then assigned to the policy
To forward all the logs , attached configuration
what if i choose another facilty ?
if i put one interface in tap mode can i forward the log to syslog server
are you seeing some logs or none on the syslog server ?
the facility is merely a 'view' option in syslog, you should be able to toggle your syslog server to that view to make sure the logs are being received
to verify logs are being forwarded properly, please take a look at
> debug log-receiver statistics
at the bottom you will see
External Forwarding stats: Type Enqueue Count Send Count Drop Count Queue Depth Send Rate(last 1min) syslog 0 0 0 0 0
which can help determine if syslog is being sent out properly or not
As I understand syslog facility is used on the syslog server to decide which log goes into which file. Facility will not help to increase or decrease the level of logging on the firewall.
As per RFC: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3164 following are the facility codes defined:
|5||syslog||messages generated internally by syslogd|
|6||lpr||line printer subsystem|
|7||news||network news subsystem|
|16||local0||local use 0 (local0)|
|17||local1||local use 1 (local1)|
|18||local2||local use 2 (local2)|
|19||local3||local use 3 (local3)|
|20||local4||local use 4 (local4)|
|21||local5||local use 5 (local5)|
|22||local6||local use 6 (local6)|
|23||local7||local use 7 (local7)|
Whereas the severity under the Log forwarding profile helps to decide what kind of logs you want to send to the syslog server.
You can choose to send different severity logs to the same syslog server with different facility values, so that they can be handled separately by the server. I hope this helps.
