HOWTO - Extreme Networks Syslog Configuration

By Erik Rodriguez

Tags: Extreme Networks Syslog, XOS syslog, ExtremeXOS logging, Extreme Networks configure syslog

This article provides information on how to configure an Extreme switch to work with a syslog server.


You will need an active syslog server running an configured to collect data from the switch. Using the configuration below, the switch will begin sending log data.

NOTE: commands in green are variables specific to your situation. Commands in black are static commands along with the correct syntax and should not change. See below:

configure syslog add vr VR-Default local7
enable log target syslog vr VR-Default local7
configure log target syslog vr VR-Default local7 filter DefaultFilter severity Debug-Data
configure log target syslog vr VR-Default local7 match Any
configure log target syslog vr VR-Default local7 format timestamp seconds date Mmm-dd event-name none process-slot priority tag-name 

The IP address shown in blue is the IP of your syslog server and the :514 is the port used by your syslog server. These commands will give you a good starting point but you may want to change the facility number (7 is used here) or the level of logging. The match flag is a regex that can anything like info, critical, emergency, etc.
