Cisco devices configuration for CW-LMS

Hello,

I am new to CiscoWorks LMS. I am working with a LMS 3.2 fresh installation. I added all the devices (routers, switches and 3 ASAs) into the DCR. Now I need to know how to configure the devices to send relevant info to the CW LMS machine. I am looking for something similar to this:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/solutions/Enterprise/Security/SAFE_RG/chap10.html#wp1056411

This is a deployment model for Cisco MARS, which shows what to configure on each device in the network to send the most relevant info (syslog, netflow) to the Cisco MARS.

Is there a best practice for CW LMS regarding this? For example, what syslog level should the routers send to the LMS?

Thank you!

There is a deployment guide whitepaper for LMS at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/cscowork/ps2425/prod_white_papers_list.html .  As for what to do syslog-wise, you should configure your logging facility to be local7 (this is the default on IOS, but not on ASA OS), and send at least sev 5 or higher messages.  You may want to bump that up to sev 6 (informational), but sev 5 for IOS devices will be sufficient to get things like configuration change messages.  For CatOS, you definitely want sev 6.
