syslog from PAM OS 3.1 to 4.1


I migrated our PAN FW from 3.1 to 4.1 and there is some more fields on TRAFFIC and THREAT syslog format.

With 3.1, using syslog-ng, I got:

Sep 27 00:00:35 giacometti-2 00: 00:35,0003C100873,TRAFFIC,end, etc ...

Since by defualt in 4.1 there is more field than with 3.1 I'd like to customize the syslog format in a way that have the sames format as it was on 3.1 (to avoind, for the moment to change syslog parser tool):


And with this format i get:

Sep 28 16:29:16 giacometti-test 16: 29:15,,,,,AC Standard,ac\t128636,,ssl,vsys1,AC-Trust,AC-Untrust,ethernet1/3,ethernet1/4,Netlog-AC,0,136120,1,4310,443,0,0,0x0,tcp,allow,354,288,66,4,2012/09/28 16:29:15,0,any,0

As you can see the firs 4 fields ($serial,$type,$subtype,$padding) are dropped somewhere, does someone have an idea why ?

Checkout device->server profiles->syslog

Create a profile and then customize it via the custom log format tab.
