Setting up syslog on a cluster

Syslog messages and SNMP Traps are important for normal operation of your cluster. Syslog messages include a priority (such as alert, critical, error, and warning), facility (such as cron, auth, authpriv, mail, and syslog), the logger, and a message. The system adds a timestamp of when the message occurred. If you configure Syslog and SNMP trap properly, then you can view logs in one file.

Syslog is enabled and settings are set in the Settings page. Go to the Syslog tab in the Console > Configuration > Settings page.
