understanding syslog output

I have been noticing what seems to me as a lehman to be alot of activity on my PIX Firewall. I do have a very restrictive access list in place inbound on the outside Interface facing the Internet.

I have logging set up to a box with a Syslog server on my inside Private network.

Alot of activity seems to be the Pix discarding packets (alot of UDP) some originate from inside; and even more from outside.

I am unsure whether I am wathcing the PIX doing its job and protecting me, or If I need to be in some reactionary alarm state to what I am seeing....

I am including the syslog output so that someone whom has experience wiht this can identify what exactly I am seeing.


Re: understanding syslog output

Looks like you are watching the PIX doing its job.

PIX is highly "chatty" when it comes to syslog messages.
