Filtering/Reducing syslog authentication messages

Hi,

I'm wanting to reduce the amount of authentication, 802.1x and MAB syslog messages going from a HP 7506 switch to the syslog server. I don't have much experience with HP switches and have found the following for Cisco switches:

no authentication logging verbose, no dot1x logging verbose, no mab logging verbose.

This filters the messages and removes things like anticipated success but still kepps failures.

Does anyone know of any similiar commands for HP switches? I could reduce the severity level of logged messages, but I don't want to remove messages that we do want, I'm just wanting to reduce the mainly 802.1 and MAB messages.

Thanks,

Jimothy007.

Re: Filtering/Reducing syslog authentication messages

Hi,

Yes, it is possible:

For example this command turns off terminal session (named "monitor") for unwanted 802.1x logs:

info-center source 8021X channel 1 trap state off

If you want to do the saem thing for syslog server traps or other destinations , please find corresponding info-center
levels/ranges, like here:

"display  info-center"


Information Center:enabled
Log host:
Console:
    channel number : 0, channel name : console
Monitor:
    channel number : 1, channel name : monitor
SNMP Agent:
    channel number : 5, channel name : snmpagent
Log buffer:
    enabled,max buffer size 1024, current buffer size 1024,
    current messages 1024, dropped messages 0, overwritten messages 2551877
    channel number : 4, channel name : logbuffer
Trap buffer:
    enabled,max buffer size 1024, current buffer size 256,
    current messages 256, dropped messages 0, overwritten messages 23633799
    channel number : 3, channel name : trapbuffer
logfile:
    channel number:9, channel name:channel9
syslog:
    channel number:6, channel name:channel6
Information timestamp setting:
    log - date, trap - date, debug - date,
    loghost - date

Br,

Mike

Re: Filtering/Reducing syslog authentication messages

Thanks Mike,

I'll have a look at that. Where do you find that kind of information?

I'm use to going on the Cisco website and their is a detailed explanation of every command, is there a HP equivaliant?

Jimothy.
