Configure Syslog on Cisco Devices (Switches & Routers)

  1. Login to the switch.

  2. Go to the config mode.

  3. Do the below configuration to configure the switch (here, we have used Catalyst 2900) to send the logs to the EventLog Analyzer server:

    <Catalyst2900># config terminal
    <Catalyst2900>(config)# logging <EventLog Analyzer IP>

    For the latest catalyst switches

    Catalyst6500(config)# set logging <EventLog Analyzer IP>

    We can also configure other options like logging facility , trap notifications, etc. .. as

    Catalyst6500(config)# logging facility local7
    Catalyst6500(config)# logging trap notifications
