Configuring Syslog Northbound Interface Parameters

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

Scenario

You can configure the northbound interface so that alarms generated on MRS Manager can be reported to your monitoring O&M system using Syslog.

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

Prerequisites

The ECS corresponding to the server must be in the same VPC as the Master node of the MRS cluster, and the Master node can access the IP address and specified port of the server.

Procedure

  1. On MRS Manager, click System.
  2. In Configuration, click Configure Syslog under Monitoring and Alarm.

    The Syslog Service is disabled by default. Click the switch to enable the Syslog service.

  3. Set the interconnection parameters listed in Table 1.

    Table 1 Syslog parameters

    Area

    Parameter

    Description

    Syslog Protocol

    Service IP Address

    Specifies the IP address of the interconnection server.

    Server Port

    Specifies the port number for interconnection.

    Protocol

    Specifies the protocol type. The options are as follows:

    • TCP
    • UDP

    Severity

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

    • Informational
    • Emergency
    • Alert
    • Critical
    • Error
    • Warning
    • Notice
    • Debug

    Facility

    Specifies the module where the log is generated.

    Identifier

    Specifies the product ID. The default value is MRS Manager.

    Report Message

    Report Format

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

    Alarm Status

    Specifies the type of the alarm to be reported.

    • Fault: indicates that the Syslog alarm message is reported when MRS Manager generates an alarm.
    • Clear: indicates that a Syslog alarm message is reported when an alarm on MRS Manager is cleared.
    • Event: indicates that the Syslog alarm message is reported when MRS Manager generates an event.

    Report Alarm Severity

    Specifies the level of the alarm to be reported. The value can be Suggestion, Minor, Major, and Critical.

    Uncleared Alarm Reporting

    Periodic Uncleared Alarm Report

    Specifies whether uncleared alarms are reported periodically. By default, the switch of Periodic Uncleared Alarm Reporting is disabled. You can click the switch to enable it.

    Report Interval (min)

    Specifies the interval for periodically reporting uncleared alarms to the remote Syslog service. This parameter is valid only when Periodic Uncleared Alarm Reporting switch is enabled. The unit is minute. The default value is 15. The value ranges from 5 minutes to one day (1,440 minutes).

    Heartbeat Settings

    Heartbeat Report

    Specifies whether to periodically report Syslog heartbeat messages. By default, the switch of Periodic Uncleared Alarm Reporting is disabled. You can click the switch to enable it.

    Heartbeat Period (min)

    Specifies the interval for periodically reporting heartbeat messages. This parameter is valid only when Heartbeat Report switch is enabled. The unit is minute. The default value is 15. The value ranges from 1 to 60.

    Heartbeat Packet

    Specifies the content of the reported heartbeat message. This parameter is enabled when Heartbeat Report is enabled. 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 management node switchover). In this case, wait for automatic recovery.
