Logging Tab

Administration > General Settings > Setup > Logging

This tab summarizes the following configured logging parameters:

  • Log Configuration refers to local logging.

  • Log Facilities Configuration refers to remote logging.

The logs keep track of alarms, events, and any other issues involving your appliances.

Severity Levels

In order of decreasing severity, the levels are as follows:

Severity Level Description
EMERGENCY System is unusable.
ALERT Includes all alarms the appliance generates: CRITICAL, MAJOR, MINOR, and WARNING.
CRITICAL Critical event.
ERROR An error. This is a non-urgent failure.
WARNING A warning condition. Indicates an error will occur if action is not taken.
NOTICE A normal, but significant, condition. No immediate action required.
INFORMATIONAL Informational. Used by Support for debugging.
DEBUG Used by Support for debugging.
NONE If you select NONE, no events are logged.
  • The bolded part of the name is what displays in the log files.

  • These are related to event logging levels, not alarm severities, even though some naming conventions overlap. Events and alarms have different sources. Alarms, when they clear, list as the ALERT level in the Event Log.

Remote Logging

  • You can configure the appliance to forward all events, at and above a specified severity, to a remote syslog server.

  • A syslog server is independently configured for the minimum severity level that it will accept. Without reconfiguring, it might not accept as low a severity level as you are forwarding to it.

  • Each message/event type (System / Audit / Flow / Ids) is assigned to a syslog facility level (local0 to local7).
