Creating a log publisher

Creating a publisher allows the BIG-IP appliance to publish the formatted log message to the local syslog database.


  1. From the navigation menu, select System > Logs > Configuration > Log Publishers.
  2. Click Create.
  3. In the Name field, type a name for the publisher.

    For example, Logging_Pub.

  4. In the Description field, type a description.
  5. From the Destinations field, in the Available list, select the log destination name that you created in Configuring a logging pool and click << to add items to the Selected list.

    This clicking action moves your logging format destination from the Available list to the Selected list. To include local logging in your publisher configuration, you can add local-db and local-syslog to the Selected list.
