Problem with Real Time Log Viewer on ASA!!!

Unanswered Question
Feb 9th, 2009


I'm having a seriou problema on ASDM. When I open ASDM, the Real Time Log Viewer pane opens and starts to show the events (logs). Suddenly, it stops. I thought that after some seconds it would refresh the events because the tool name is "REAL TIME Log Viewer", but it didn't occur.

The only way to make return is close e open ASDM again. I updated ASDM already but the problem continues.

Someone with a suggestion???

I have this problem too.

I am having exaclty the same problem on my ASA 5505.

The problem started when I upgraded to ASA 8.2(1) and ASDM 6.2(1). This is very annoying, I hope it will get fixed in an update.

It seems you are hitting this bug: CSCsm11264, here is the explanation of the bug:

When long url triggers syslog 304001 ASA stops sending syslogs to ASDM


When viewing syslogs generated by the firewall from within ASDM, the syslogs might stop being logged.

This will continually happen until you disable the 304001 syslogs.


The ASA must be running at least version 8, and must be configured for either http inspection, or url filtering with an external url server.


The problem seems to be triggered by the syslog 304001 and 304002 which displays the URL that a user accesses. By disabling logging of this syslog, the problem can be mitigated. The command to do this is:

ASA(config)#no logging message 304001

ASA(config)#no logging message 304002
