I have ASA 5520 and when I log into the CLI there is a constant filter of logs coming in, so many I can do anything. What do I need to stop these and maybe jsut show critical issues and not rules being triggered etc?

It looks loggs is set up to be sent to you ssh/telnet session..

you can turn it off by command

no logging monitor

You can do same for console (if its on)

no logging console

Remember its still useful to have some logs send to syslog server or to buffer

Consult this page for more information

Hope that helps rate if it does

If you are logging via console (serial) then you can either adjust the logging level for console:

logging console 3 or 4

OR turn it off altogether.

no logging console

If you telnet/ssh into the box then its:

logging monitor ...

and to turn it off/on temporarily you can use:

terminal no monitor

terminal monitor
