What is 'debug log-output-need-utf8' of cli commands in PANOS-7.0?

Hello,

 

I discovered 'debug log-output-need-utf8' of cli commands in PANOS-7.0.

I tested to switch beween yes and no. But I do not know what both are different.

What is this?

I think It would be important for all of using double bytes language as me.

So I just would like to know it.

 

Thanks.

@KiCheon.Lee, that command:

log-output-need-utf8

Is a system option to support utf8 for log output. That is all. Switching it off and on will not "change" anything performance related as it only has to deal with Log Output format.

 

I hope this helps you understand that command better.

 

For more information on the CLI commands, please visit this page:

Command Line Interface (CLI) Reference Guide Release 6.1

Yes, I know it is for PAN-OS 6.1, but it is also applicable for PAN-OS 7.

Stay Secure,
Joe

The command is not just for Syslog, it is for ALL log output to be in utf8 formatting.

 

Stay Secure,
