The log messages reference isn't broken down that way. I'll ask around to see if I can get a more granular view.

Hello Rupesh,

>> access related Syslog message for F5 Big IP LTM for CMI network

can you elaborate on the information you need and the kind of syslog messages you are looking for? Access related messages refers to BIG-IP APM and CMI network refers to the communication channel between device group members, for e.g. ConfigSync messages.


For both, we have Error messages type articles in Askf5. For e.g.

These article contain more granular information about each error message. A summary of them would be the log messages reference that Jason provided above.

Hello Team,


I want to capture all the syslog messages for F5 devices that we are using in our network.


Generally need to collect all the syslog messages F5 is generating when someone trying to access the devices.

For BIG-IP events, the system routes messages through syslog-ng to the local log files. For access to the system, you would be most interested in /var/log/ltm. Also review /var/log/audit, /var/log/secure.

For other log files and what they mean, refer to K16197: Reviewing BIG-IP log files

If you'd like to have the logs at a remote server, or consolidate the logs from multiple BIG-IP systems, you can configure BIG-IP to log to a remote server. Refer to:

K13080: Configuring the BIG-IP system to log to a remote syslog server (11.x - 15.x)

K13333: Filtering log messages sent to remote syslog servers (11.x - 15.x)

and if things don't work:

K86480148: Troubleshooting issues sending logs to a remote syslog server

Let me know if this doesn't address your query.
