ASA - Syslog Message List by Event Class?

Answered Question
Jul 9th, 2010

Hey gang:

I'm updating my logging lists and would like to know if there is a list of syslog messages by event class (I found the list by severity level).  If not, is there some way to identify the class by looking at the syslog message number?

Thanks.

I have this problem too.

Unfortunately that doesn't really show us, for example, what class messsage ID# 730010 would fall under.  That's what I'm after.

Hello,

Unfortunately, there does not seem to be any specific classification of

those individual message types. Typically you configure the message classes

based on your requirement i.e. if you are interested in seeing VPN related

messages, then you use "VPN" class and set appropriate severity. Here is a

document that outlines some additional information about the syslog

messages.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the replies.

I understand typical usage, but what if you don't know what class an individual message would fall under?  I can make a good guess at most, but I'd rather be certain.  This is what I cannot find in the Cisco documentation nor in 3rd party published material.

Another example:  I want to receieve emails for threat detection messages (733100 - 733105).  Because I'm not sure what class these are in (I'd guess IPS) I have to add them individually to my email logging list.  It'd be a heck of a lot easier to add the entire class that they belong to.

I wish ASAs had some tool to filter syslog messages based on user defined patterns like logging discriminator or ESM in Cisco IOS.

Thanks, halijenn!  I totally skipped past that part when I was looking at the messages by severity.  d'oh!
