Hi every body.

Is there a way to stop a device from sending a particular type of syslog message?

If the answer is yes, please help me out with this particular one:14276: Aug 12 01:51:45.177: %SW_MATM-4-MACFLAP_NOTIF: Host 00a0.f856.f438 in vlan 197 is flapping between port Fa4/0/1 and port Fa4/0/5.

I just one want to stop the e-mails from coming until I find a solution to the real issue.

Thanks a bunch.

Hi Hipolito,

One solution could be to change the logging level on the device:

conf t

logging trap error

This will send notifications to the syslog server on the following only:

errors - level 3

critical - level 2

alarm - level 1

emergency - level 0

Don't forget to reestablish the logging level after you have corrected the problem.
