• Syslog: The Syslog feature is used to create records of each buffer event. As
event records are created, they are sent to a Syslog Daemon, at an IP address
defined via the Network Parameters menu. For more information, please refer to
Section 11. The Syslog feature offers three possible settings. (Default = Off)
◆ Off: Syslog disabled. (Default)
◆ On - Not Connected: Messages will only be generated when a user is not
connected to a buffer port (either by /C or direct connect.) This prevents
information captured from the attached device from being put into Syslog
messages while a user is connected to a buffer port.
◆ On - Always: All captured information will be sent out via Syslog message;
whether a user is connected or not.
• Syslog is only available at Buffer Mode Ports.
• This option is not available to serial port 1, because port 1 cannot be
configured as a Buffer Mode Port.
The Port Parameters menu also offers two additional items used to set the priority of
Syslog messages generated by this port:
◆ Facility: The facility under which this port will log messages.
(Default = Local_0.)
◆ Level: The severity (or priority) of messages generated by this port. (Default =
• SNMP Trap Level: Enables/disables the SNMP Trap function and sets the byte
level that will generate traps at this port. If set to "0" (zero), then SNMP Traps are
disabled at this port.
If this value is set between 1 and 32,767, then the SNMP Trap function is enabled,
and traps will be sent to the SNMP Managers whenever the buffer for this port
reaches the specified level. For more information, please refer to Section 12.
(Default = Off.)
• The SNMP Trap feature only applies to Buffer Mode Ports.
• This option is not available to serial port 1. This is because Port 1 is reserved
as a Set Up Port, and cannot be configured as a Buffer Mode Port.
