VCS syslog question

Just started working with VCS/TMS, group getting our syslogs is asking me some questions.  The events getting logged on the syslog seem to match events from the Event and Configuration logs, but the network logs don't seem to show up.

Here are specifics:

VCS - ver7.1

Under System>Logging>Log Level = 2

Not sure if this is normal or not?

VCS syslog question

Hi David,

syslog on VCS provides event logs only. It also does report the network logs but related to SIP messages. check the admin guide for x7.1 for more updates.

Level Assigned Events

Level

1

High-level events such as registration requests and call attempts. Easily human readable. For example:

n call attempt/connected/disconnected

n registration attempt/accepted/rejected

Level

2

All Level 1 Events, plus:

n logs of protocol messages sent and received (SIP, H.323, LDAP and so on) excluding noisy messages

such as H.460.18 keepalives and H.245 video fast-updates

Level

3

All Level 1 and Level 2 Events, plus:

n protocol keepalives

n call-related SIP signaling messages

Level

4

The most verbose level: all Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 Events, plus:

n network level SIP messages

You can control which events are logged by the VCS by setting the Log level. All events with a level

numerically equal to and lower than the specified logging level are recorded in the Event Log. So, at level 1,

only level 1 events are logged; at level 2, both level 1 and level 2 events are logged, and so on. The default log

level is 1.

Note that:

n Logging at level 3 or level 4 is not usually recommended as the Event Log holds a maximum of 2GB of data

and logging at these levels on a busy system may cause the Event Log to be recycled too quickly.

Thanks
