Configuring Syslog Northbound Parameters

Updated at: Mar 25, 2021 GMT+08:00

Scenarios

If users need to view alarms and events of a cluster on the unified alarm reporting platform, you can use the Syslog protocol on FusionInsight Manager to report related data to the alarm platform.

If the Syslog protocol is not encrypted, data may be stolen.

Procedure

  1. Log in to FusionInsight Manager.
  2. Choose System > Interconnection > Syslog.
  3. Turn on the switch on the right of Syslog Service.

    The Syslog service is disabled by default. indicates that the service is enabled.

  4. Set northbound parameters based on information provided in Table 1.

    Table 1 Syslog interconnection parameters

    Parameter Area

    Parameter

    Description

    Syslog Protocol

    Server IP Address Mode

    Set the IP address mode of the interconnected server.The value can be IPv4 or IPv6.

    Server IP Address

    Sets the IP address of the interconnection server.

    Server Port

    Specifies the port number for interconnection.

    Protocol

    Sets the protocol type. The available values are as follows:

    • TCP
    • UDP

    Severity Level

    Specifies the severity of the reported message. The options are as follows:

    • Emergency
    • Alert
    • Critical
    • Error
    • Warning
    • Notice
    • Informational (default value)
    • Debug
      NOTE:

      Severity and Facility determine the priority of the sent message.

      Priority = Facility × 8 + Severity

      For details about the values of Severity and Facility, see Table 2.

    Facility

    Sets the module where the log is generated. For details about the available value of this parameter, see Table 2. The default value local use 0 (local0) is recommended.

    Identifier

    Sets the product ID. The default value is FusionInsight Manager.

    The identifier can contain a maximum of 256 characters, including letters, digits, underscores (_), spaces, |, $, {, }, periods (.), and hyphens (-).

    Report Message

    Report Format

    Sets the message format of the alarm report. For details, see help information on the page.

    The packet can contain letters, digits, underscores (_), spaces, |, $, {, }, periods (.), and hyphens (-), and cannot exceed 1024 characters.

    NOTE:

    For details about the information field in the packet format, see Table 3.

    Alarm Type

    Sets the type of the alarm to be reported.

    Alarm Severities

    Sets the level of the alarm to be reported.

    Uncleared Alarm Reporting

    Periodic Uncleared Alarm Reporting

    Sets whether to report uncleared alarms in a specified period. Turn on the switch indicates that the function is enabled, and turn off the switch indicates that the function is disabled. The switch is turned off by default.

    Report Interval (min)

    Sets the interval at which alarms are reported periodically. This parameter is valid only when the switch is turned on on the right of Periodic Uncleared Alarm Reporting. The default value is 15, in minutes. The value ranges from 5 to 1440 (one day).

    Heartbeat Settings

    Heartbeat Reporting

    Sets whether to periodically report Syslog heartbeat messages. Turn on the switch indicates that the function is enabled, and turn off the switch indicates that the function is disabled. The switch is turned off by default.

    Heartbeat Period (min)

    Sets the interval at which heartbeat messages are periodically reported. This parameter is valid only when the switch is turned on on the right of Heartbeat Reporting. The default value is 15, in minutes. The value ranges from 1 to 60.

    Heartbeat Packet

    Sets the heartbeat message to be reported. This parameter is enabled if the switch is turned on on the right of Heartbeat Reporting, and cannot be left blank. The value can contain a maximum of 256 characters, including digits, letters, underscores (_), vertical bars (|), colons (:), spaces, commas (,), and periods (.).

    After the periodic heartbeat packet function is enabled, packets may be interrupted during automatic recovery of some cluster error tolerance (for example, active/standby OMS switchover). In this case, wait for automatic recovery.
