The Orion Web Console provides both syslog-specific resources and a syslog view with a table of syslog messages received by your SolarWinds Orion server.

The Syslog view displays a list of all the syslog messages generated by monitored network devices. The messages are listed by time of transmission, with the most recent at the top of the list.

  1. Log in to the Orion Web Console, and click Alerts & Activity > Syslogs in the menu bar.
  2. To filter syslog messages so that only messages relevant for specific devices are displayed:
    • To view messages for a specific syslog-enabled network object, select it in the Network Object list.

      Only objects that have sent a syslog message to the Orion server will be listed in this field.

    • To view messages for a specific device, provide the IP address in the IP Address field.
    • To view messages for a specific device type, select it in the Type of Device list.
    • To view messages for a specific vendor, select the vendor in the Vendors list.
  3. To select which syslog messages should be displayed:
    • To view only messages with a severity, select the severity.
    • To view messages for a facility, select the facility.
    • To view messages of a type, type the string into the Message Type field.
    • To view only messages containing a pattern, provide the string in the Message Pattern field.

      You can use the following wildcards:

      Asterisk (*)

      Use * before or after the pattern string if the provided pattern is not the beginning, the end or the full message.

      Underscore (_)

      Use _ as a placeholder for one character.

    • To view syslog messages from a specific period of time, select either a period of time or enter custom Beginning and Ending Date/Times.
    • Type the number of syslog messages you want to view into Number of Displayed Messages.
    • To view cleared and acknowledged syslog messages, select Show Cleared Messages.
  4. Click Refresh to update the syslog messages list with your settings.

Syslog messages matching the selected criteria display in a list beneath the search area.

Click Hide or Show in the top-right corner of the view to remove or restore the Syslog messages search criteria area.

Click the Hostname or Message to open the Device Details view for the device.
