Cisco ASA5505 Logging

This is likely a very basic question....

I've got a new Cisco ASA5505 and I'm trying to see some logs at console level. Currently when I do a sh logging I simply get the below. I was expecting or I have seen on other PIX/ASA's system messages.

Any ideas on what command I need to run in order to enable these messages?

mipsasa01# sh logging

Syslog logging: enabled

Facility: 20

Timestamp logging: disabled

Standby logging: disabled

Deny Conn when Queue Full: disabled

Console logging: disabled

Monitor logging: disabled

Buffer logging: disabled

Trap logging: disabled

History logging: disabled

Device ID: disabled

Mail logging: disabled

ASDM logging: level informational, 7108 messages logged

Re: Cisco ASA5505 Logging

The "show log" displays what is known as the buffer log. Your buffer logging is disabled. Use the config cmd "logging buffered " to enable it. You can adjust the size of the buffer with "logging buffer-size ". I think the buffer space is allocated in memory so don't go overboard.
