11. Syslog Messages
The Syslog feature can create log records of each Alarm Event. As these event records
are created, they are sent to a Syslog Daemon, located at an IP address defined via the
Network Parameters menu.
In order to employ this feature, you must set the real-time clock and calendar via the
System Parameters Menu, and define the IP address for the Syslog Daemon via the
Network Port Configuration menu.
To configure the Syslog function, please proceed as follows:
1. Access command mode: Note that the following configuration menus are only
available to accounts that permit Administrator level commands.
2. System Parameters Menu: Access the System Parameters Menu as described in
Section 5.3, then set the following parameters:
a) Set Clock and Calendar: Set the Real Time Clock and Calendar and/or
configure and enable the NTP server feature.
3. Network Parameters Menu: Access the Network Parameters Menu as described
in Section 5.9, then set the following parameters:
a) Syslog IP Address: Determine the IP address for the device that will run the
Syslog Daemon, then use the Network Port Configuration menu to define the IP
Address for the Syslog Daemon.
5. Syslog Daemon: In order to capture messages sent by the RSM-8R4, a computer
must be running a Syslog Daemon (set to UDP Port 514) at the IP address specified
in Step 4 above.
Once the Syslog Address is defined, Syslog messages will be generated whenever one
of the alarms discussed in Section 7 is triggered.
