Syslog Question

Unanswered Question

I am capturing syslog events from numerous cisco switches and have noticed my 2950 switches generate link up/down as errors when a connected device is rebooted. I obviously need to collect all error level events from these switches but do not really consider these link up/down messages as being at the error level. Is there any way to change these events from being considered errors to being considered informational events?

I have this problem too.

You can change the logging level on the switch. You should have a statement like:

logging trap critical

There are seven levels:

0 emergencies

1 alerts

2 critical

3 errors

4 warnings

5 notifications

6 debugging

Tom's original post specified that he wants to continue to collect all error level messages except for the link up/down messages. Changing the logging level would prevent that.

I do not know if it is a version difference, feature set difference, or what, but it works fine on my 2950.
