Commentary

Syslog provides a mechanism on devices to log the messages that a specific device (system) will typically generate to the console. This provides engineers with the ability to look back at the history of device and the view the events that have happened to gain insight as to its current status. This mechanism accounts for Syslog’s widespread use in troubleshooting. It also provides a method of delivering these messages to an external Syslog server for central storage.

For this lab you were asked to alter the format of the Syslog messages. The two most used options include the use of sequence numbers as well as timestamps (Default) which enable system events to be correlated with other systems information. The service sequence-numbers and service timestamps global commands enable both; to disable them, use the same command with a no at the beginning.

The lab also asked that you configure the logging buffered command so that the router will buffer (store in memory) a copy of the log messages. Cisco devices typically use a default of keeping log messages in a buffer, but the examples show the command just to be complete as compared to the requirements in the lab.
