ASA syslog drops

Unanswered Question
Sep 10th, 2008

Can anyone tell me what causes the errors and drops to increment on a show logging output? See below:

Syslog logging: enabled

Facility: 17

Timestamp logging: enabled

Standby logging: enabled

Deny Conn when Queue Full: disabled

Console logging: disabled

Monitor logging: level alerts, 9598 messages logged

Buffer logging: disabled

Trap logging: level warnings, facility 17, 330380 messages logged

Logging to internal hitachi-leeds-int-leemon01 errors: 9346 dropped: 116128

History logging: disabled

Device ID: disabled

Mail logging: disabled

ASDM logging: disabled

I have this problem too.

"Logging to internal hitachi-leeds-int-leemon01 errors: 9346 dropped: 116128


Above output shows that you have setup a syslog server whose name is "hitachi-leeds-int-leemon01 ".While sending syslogs to this server,packets were dropped.This essentially tells us that there is a communication issue between the server and f/w.It could be because of high traffic conditions where f/w tries to send the logs to server using the inside interface and because of high traffic passing through inside interface,syslogs get dropped.
