With show logging you can see the syslog levels are being used for logging to various destinations like console, buffer, server.

You can adjust the buffer logging with logging buffered . Here I usually use informational.

Can you paste the "show logging" (only the settings part)?

Hope this helps, rate if does.

Kiwi syslog and symantec central log management application SIM, and both a listening on UDP port 514

@ the moment i am getting only 2 types of message on syslog server

1. configured from console by me on vty 0 (ip address)

2. linkproto-sp-5-updown: line protocol on interface xx , change state to up

nothing else is shown. where as i want to see all traffic just like when i enable syslog on ASA with trap informational I start getting all traffic including alot of other information.


I'm afraid you will not be able to see all the traffic flowing through the switch like you see in ASA.

Only certain conditions will trigger syslog messages but the normal data flow will not be logged.

The other option is what I would not use is to set up acl with log option on the required interface/vlan and if the acl is hit syslog message is being sent, but that impacts the throughput of the device and can cause high CPU utilization.

Hope this helps
