Cisco Prime Infrastructure - syslog based config download for FWSM


I'm using Cisco PI 2.0 for monitoring FWSM modules. FWSMs are discovered, modeled and configurations are successfully downloaded from them. I'd like to set up config download when a syslog message is received from FWSM. Syslog message is in fact configuration change event. It works for other Cisco devices (switches, routers,...) but I can't get it work on FWSMs.

FWSM sends this syslog message when user enters and exits config mode:

%FWSM-5-111008: User 'user' executed the 'configure terminal' command.

Can PI react to this message or PI currently doesn't have support for it?

Other Cisco devices react to this syslog message:

%SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from console by user on vty0 (

One thing I've noticed and

One thing I've noticed and which I have to clarify. What is 'configuration change event'? I thought it is an event generated when user enters and exits config mode but looking at my devices I see it's not. I've got an example where PI downloaded device config after receiving interface up/down syslog messages. Can somebody please explain this behavior?
