Another Syslog Problem

I have recently installed Cisco C-Class enclosures with Cisco 3120 switches in them.

I'm getting tons of interface up/down syslog messages and I'm not able to stop them:

Sep 1 12:49:58.402: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface GigabitEthernet1/0/3, changed state to down

I did the following:

1. I enabled the message filter in syslog set to drop the up/down syslog

2. I turned off interface logging by using the interface command "no logging event link-status"

Now if I do show log in the switch I don't see any messages on the console but message to my syslog_info file are constantly

growing and also appear in the syslog 24 hour and standard report. How do I stop these messages from seeing in syslog?

Post the full config from this switch as well as a screenshot of the RME Syslog Message Filters screen.

Set Include interfaces of selected devices to Yes, and the filter should be effective. As for why the messages are still being sent, I cannot say. The config appears to be correct.
