IDS 4.0 and router console logging

I've got my IDS setup and running, but now when it adds anything to the ACL, it adds this: deny any log

with the log in there, it's generating a lot of spam on the console when you are trying to use the router. How do I stop this console logging?

You will find it listed in this document if it's a known issue,

Re: IDS 4.0 and router console logging

There is a configuration to tell the sensor whether or not to add "log" at the end of each deny line.

In 3.x it is controlled by the EnableACLLogging token in managed.conf. It can be configured through IDM: step 6

If using IDS MC then you will need to reference their documentation.

In 4.x it is controlled by the "enable-acl-logging" configuration line:

sensor-3# configure terminal

sensor-3(config)# service networkaccess

sensor-3(config-NetworkAccess)# general

sensor-3(config-NetworkAccess-gen)# enable-acl-logging false

In 4.x it is not configurable in IDM, if using IDS MC you would need to reference their documenation.

In 3.x set the token to "0" to prevent the sensor from adding "log", and in 4.x set the configuration to "false".
