sorry for not being so clear...

what i mean is the config on the FWSM

The platform makes no differnce, the fact it you configure the FWSM to send the syslogs to another device = syslog server.

In the syslog server you configure what you need.

You cannot tell the fwsm that you want the remote files to be saved in a particular format or with a specific just sends the syslog.

i know that we have tp do simething on the syslog server.. what iam asking is the fwsm configuration.

Yes - you can configure your nework devices to use "differenet" facility numbers, so your syslog server knows which device type is sending the syslog. it facility 17 is a firewall, facility 10 is a router.

BUT you STILL have to configure your syslog server to log the information by device name/ip address etc.

This cannot be done in the network device.
