Setting Attributes for Syslog Policies


This chapter provides information about assigning a description to a syslog policy and syslog policy attributes.

A syslog policy is a collection of attributes. There are four syslog policy attributes:

console—You can create, enable, disable, set the console attribute.

file—You can create, enable, disable, set the file attribute.

monitor—You can create, enable, disable, set the monitor attribute.

remote destination—You can create, enable, disable, set the remote attribute.

For details about creating, enabling, disabling, and setting attributes, see any of the appropriate sections below.

This chapter includes the following sections:

Assigning a Description to a Syslog Policy

Sending Syslog Alerts

Working With the Console Attribute

Working With the File Attribute

Working With the Monitor Attribute

Working With the Remote Destination Attribute

Assigning a Description to a Syslog Policy

You can assign a policy description to a syslog policy.
