Hi,Which prime version are


Which prime version are you using ?

Here is what Prime 2.1 user guide says

Prime Infrastructure logs all emergency, alert, and critical messages generated by all devices that are managed by Prime Infrastructure.

Prime Infrastructure also logs all SNMP messages and syslogs it receives. To view syslogs, choose Operate > Alarms & Events , then click the Syslogs tab.

Syslog Predefined Filters

Prime Infrastructure uses the following syslog filters:

Severity 0 and 1
Severity 2
Environmental Monitor
Memory Allocation Failure
Catalyst Integrated Security Features
Cisco IOS Firewall Denial of Service

Read this thread as well, it talks about tweak this setting, but it could leads to fill up your prime disk space quickly.

Changing Syslog Logging Options

Syslog option allows you to enable the sending of syslog messages relating to the internal operation of Prime Infrastructure, to a third party syslog server. It does not enable the relaying of syslog messages received from network devices, to a third party syslog server.

Step 1 Choose Administration > Logging , then click Syslog Logging Options .

Step 2 Select the Enable Syslog check box to enable sending of Prime Infrastructure system log messages.

Step 3 Configure the IP address of Syslog Server to which the system log message have to be sent.

Step 4 Choose the Syslog Facility. You can choose any of the eight local use facilities for sending syslog messages. The local use facilities are not reserved and are available for general use.

Step 5 Click Save .
