Need to verify if F5 is sending logs to Syslog Server for local1 Facility

Subrun

Cirrostratus

With the syslog setting as below how can i confirm it will send the APM related logs to remote syslog server ? This doc

( https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K15521451 ) says Local1 facility will carry APM related logs but below output does not show anything related to Local 1. Only shows Local6.

 

Can you advise ?

Hi Subrun,

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

logger -p <facility>.<level> "<descriptive message>" and after check if the event appears in /var/log/apm.
