Does anyone have a suggestion on how to generate system events on an ASM at error, critical, or emergency levels for testing remote syslog logging?

Hi,

 

you can use the logger command to generate a log message manually

logger -p <facility>.<level> "<descriptive message>"

[admin@F5BIPIP:Active:In Sync] ~ # logger -p local0.notice "testing LTM facility level notice" [admin@F5BIPIP:Active:In Sync] ~ # tail -f /var/log/ltm Apr 24 08:16:14 F5BIPIP notice admin[29591]: testing LTM facility notice

​That worked perfectly, thanks!  The events even show up in the GUI.
