Unanswered Question

Does anyone know if it is possible to moify the syslog messages generated by a CSS. Many of our machines send syslog to a single server. We would liek to filter these messages, and put them in different files according to type of device, ie. host names with se in them go to the switches folder, etc.

The problem is that the syslog messages generated by the CSS do not have anythign in them referring to the device itself, only a time stamp and the message. So it is impossible to foliter these messages.

Any idea?

Anyone have any ideas here?

This is a sample of the syslog messages coming from our css11000:

APR 9 14:28:16 1/1 503 NETMAN-6: CLM: Login [email protected]

APR 9 14:28:19 1/1 504 NETMAN-6: CLMcmd: sh circuits ,[email protected]

APR 9 14:28:27 1/1 505 NETMAN-6: CLMcmd: sh rule-summary,[email protected]

APR 9 14:28:30 1/1 506 NETMAN-6: CLMcmd: exit,[email protected]

APR 9 14:28:30 1/1 507 NETMAN-6: CLM: Logout [email protected]

We have seveal CSSes reporting to the same syslog server running sylog-ng and there is no way to filter them.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
