If the library is configured to send syslog (system log) notifications, it sends a notification of each event to the syslog server. The syslog server keeps its own log of events and can be set to filter them, distribute more notifications, or record them in any was as needed. Events sent to Syslog servers can be filtered at the library level by severity level (error, warning, and/or information).
Occasionally, the tape library might encounter situations that you want to know about. These situations can be conditions that affect library performance, such as an open door that causes the library to stop. You might also want to log user actions, such as a cartridge move or export that is initiated from the management GUI. Syslog notifications can alert you of these conditions.
