Rate Limits on Syslog

Hi all

My syslog is being hammered by a lot of useless junk. is the way to deal with this through rate limits? If so what is a sensible number of messages and interval to set?

Thanks

A better option would be to turn of logging for unwanted syslog messages e.g.

no logging message

Or use logging lists/classes:

Re: Rate Limits on Syslog

I'd like to log unsuccessful attempts but only once.

So for example I only want one entry for someone trying to ping me rather than every single packet.

Turning off a specific message seems to be global which I'd rather not do if I can avoid it.

Any ideas?

Re: Rate Limits on Syslog

I don't think you can do this on the ASA. You could perhaps send this information to a specialized syslog analyzer (like MARS,manage engine, Sawmill) and then run custom queries/reports.
