Could someone please show me how I can verify that my switch is sending log messages to the syslog server, and if possible what it is sending to the syslog server.

Basically I'm not seeing messages appear on my syslog server so I'd like to verify that they are being sent first.

Hi Dan,

Check the "show logging" output. It would look like -

Syslog logging:enabled (2 messages dropped, 0 flushes, 0 overruns)

Console logging:disabled

Monitor logging:level debugging, 0 messages logged

Buffer logging:level debugging, 4104 messages logged

Trap logging:level debugging, 4119 message lines logged

Logging to, 4119 message lines logged

You can see the number of messages logged.
