Prime 1.3 as a Syslog Server

If Prime is set as a Syslog Server, where is the direcotry located that contains the log and how do I get to it if its a linux box?

I see a section for dowloading the log file and I have a couple of switches pointing to the server as their syslog host, but I dont see any syslog text file or and syslog messages in the download.  Any ideas?

Prime 1.3 as a Syslog Server

Hi Andrew:

There's not a user directory where syslogs that are captured and processed are stored.  They are seen in the GUI under Operate > Alarms & Events > Events tab > Syslog tab.

However, not every syslog event that Prime Infrastructure is kept and displayed, currently it only shows severities 1-3.  Bug CSCud66666 is opened to have the syslog functionality expanded.

Prime 1.3 as a Syslog Server

The general purpose syslog server is not quite baked on PI 1.x. Please refer to this related thread for some related information.

At this point, I'd advise either a different solution (Prime LMS has a working one) or waiting for PI 2.0 (August) and seeing if they fix it then.
