Syslog Messages (/etc/messages)

The Syslog Messages page displays information and error messages that the storage system displays on the console and logs in the /etc/messages file. 


To specify the types of messages that the storage system logs, use the Syslog Configuration page to edit the /etc/syslog.conf file. This file specifies which types of messages are logged by the syslogd daemon. By default, messages of priority information and higher are logged.

Note: If a message includes a hyperlink, click the link to go to the Syslog Translator for a detailed definition of the triggering event.


You should check this page at least once a day to see whether there are error conditions that require your attention.

In the Configure Syslog page you can perform the following procedures.

To configure the syslog file, complete the following steps:

  1. Click in the display box and click New Action.
  2. In the Action field, enter where you want the messages to go; for example, /etc/messages, @adminhost, or /dev/console.
