Description

This article provides the procedure to configure E-series that can only send error and above events to syslog server.
  • Regarding syslog facility:
    • DON'T change defaultFacility for E-series because currently only critical events can be sent to syslog by default.
    • The syslog facility indicates what device is sending logs to the syslog server.
      • It is not necessary to assign more than one facility to a syslog server.
      • This option does not change what is logged or sent to the syslog server. 
      • By default, defaultFacility=3 is configured on  E-series.
