Audit Logging - GUI in F5 Big IP

Hello Members,

I am using a F5 BIG IP LTM version 15.1.2.1 in our Infra.

Can someone explain whats "GUI" option in Audit Logging configuration ?
The other options i am quite aware are the MCP and tmsh, which are already enabled and in use.

Curious to understand what audit logs we get if we enable GUI logging ?

Hello Nikhilmbass.

That is the definition:

----------------

Specifies the log level for Master Control Program (MCP) events. The default is Enable.

  • Select Disable to turn off audit logging for MCP events.
  • Select Enable to turn on logging for MCP events.
  • Select Verbose to turn on descriptive logging for MCP events.
  • Select Debug to turn on logging and description for all MCP events.

Specifies the log level for tmsh utility events. The default is Enable.

  • Select Disable to turn off audit logging of tmsh utility events.
  • Select Enable to turn on logging for tmsh utility events.

Specifies the log level for GUI events. The default is Disable.

  • Select Disable to turn off audit logging of GUI events.
  • Select Enable to turn on logging for GUI events.

----------------

So, GUI is for web access and tmsh for CLI. MCP is the daemon that manages the configuration changes.

Dario.

but when I enable all the options in System  ››  Logs : Configuration : Options >> Audit logging.

I can't see any audit log in System  ››  Logs : Audit : List.
