[ENG] 3.12. [DKSF 48.5 IU] What Messages are There in the System Log?

The page «LOG» of a web interface represents a device operation. In the log file events of a device are recorded in a chronological order. All notifications of the log file are duplicated via SYSLOG protocol, if an IP address of the SYSLOG server is specified in the settings of a device.

A log file is located in a nonvolatile memory. There are approximately 220 - 350 last notifications stored in the memory. All notifications are rewritten round, which means that the oldest notification in the log file is rewritten by a new one.

The first time tag in the log file is 01.01.70 Mon 00:00: 00.UTC. If there is an IP address of an NTP server specified in the settings, then a device will try to get a precise time and in case of success it will synchronize its internal clock with a precise time. After synchronizing time, two records will appear in the log file that represent a time lapse when adjusting a clock to a precise time. If time received when synchronizing with an NTP server is different from the time of an internal clock for less than 5 minutes, the clock will not be adjusted. The pace of the internal clock is changed in the way to adjust internal time with a precise time received from an NTP server in a certain amount of time. Due to this, there is no time lapse in the list of events in the log file, which makes analyzing it easier.

General Events

Operation Start (Reboot) XXXX YYYY – is recorded into the log file when rebooting or turning a device on. XXXX is a model name of a device. YYYY is a firmware version, installed on a device.

Adjusting......the Clock is recorded into the log file if a time received via an NTP protocol is more than 5 minutes different from the time set on the internal clock. The notification is displayed in 2 lines. The first line represents a time tag before resetting the internal clock while the second line represents a time tag right after resetting the internal clock.

All notifications in the log are duplicated by sending notifications via a SYSLOG protocol, if SYSLOG server addresses are specified in the settings of a device at the page «Setup» of a web interface.

SYSLOG server is convenient to be used for a centralized collecting of notifications on events, taking place at numerous devices and computers, working in the network, particularly, on events at Netping devices.
