Re: How to enable syslog in Cisco Routers

Setup a syslog server on a *nix/Windows server.

Set the desired logging level with this command:

logging trap debugging

There are 8 levels of logging:

0 - emergency

1 - alert

2 - critical

3 - error

4 - warning

5 - notification

6 - informational

7 - debugging

Set the syslog server IP:

logging 172.21.100.100

(Optional) set the logging facility:

logging facility local7

By default the facility is local7. There are local0-local7. The facility is kinda like a tag used by the syslog server to decide which file to put the syslog messages in.
