Sorry for the looong post following this, but it is a paste from the knowledgebase..

An important feature within the IronPort C-Series appliance is its logging capabilities. AsyncOS can generate many types of logs, recording varying types of information. Log files contain the records of regular operations and exceptions from various components of the system. This information can be valuable when monitoring your IronPort C-Series appliance as well as when troubleshooting or checking performance.

Logs can be configured and created through the IronPort CLI using the logconfig command or via the GUI. See the link below for configurng logs via the GUI.

Below is an example of creating a LDAP debug log subscription using the CLI:.

ironport.com> logconfig

Currently configured logs:
1. "antivirus" Type: "Anti-Virus Logs" Retrieval: FTP Poll
2. "avarchive" Type: "Anti-Virus Archive" Retrieval: FTP Poll
3. "bounces" Type: "Bounce Logs" Retrieval: FTP Poll
4. "brightmail" Type: "Symantec Brightmail Anti-Spam Logs" Retrieval: FTP Poll
5. "cli_logs" Type: "CLI Audit Logs" Retrieval: FTP Poll
6. "error_logs" Type: "IronPort Text Mail Logs" Retrieval: FTP Poll

Re: CLI Filters -> Logconfig

I know what Logconfig is.... but there is no documentation for Filters -> Logconfig...

ironport.com> filters


Choose the operation you want to perform:
- NEW - Create a new filter.
- DELETE - Remove a filter.
- IMPORT - Import a filter script from a file.
- EXPORT - Export filters to a file
- MOVE - Move a filter to a different position.
- SET - Set a filter attribute.
- LIST - List the filters.
- DETAIL - Get detailed information on the filters.
- LOGCONFIG - Configure log subscriptions used by filters.
- ROLLOVERNOW - Roll over a filter log file.

My quick guess would be that you can create log subscriptions based on the filters you create and further more you can do a rollover on those logfiles like you can on regular logfiles.

Re: CLI Filters -> Logconfig

Which is weird, because if you type in logconfig off of filters, it gives me this:

Currently configured logs:
No logs currently configured.

So, what type of log do I need to setup for filters to use logs. There isn't anything obvious in Logconfig...

Re: CLI Filters -> Logconfig

If you have a filter which does an archive("foo") action somewhere "foo" will show up under filters > logconfig. It allows you to set the log size and number of generations kept on the IronPort.

would this be a correct example of the code to use?


DropBadSBRSEmails: if (reputation <= -3.0) AND (sendergroup != "whitelist") {
archive("badsbrs");
drop();
}
