Real-time change detection provides instant notification through email whenever a change to any of your device configurations occurs. Real-time change detection requires you to enable your device to send syslog or SNMP trap messages.

Cisco devices send trap messages when a user enters config mode, but not when the user exits. To address this scenario, SolarWinds recommends using the syslog option for setting up real-time change detection.

The following example shows how to use a config change template to enable syslog messaging on the Tex-3750.aus.lab router.

  1. Click My Dashboards > Configs > Config Change Templates.
  2. Select Enable Syslog - Cisco IOS, and click Define Variables & Run.


  3. Select the device on which you want to enable syslog, and click Next.


  4. Enter the IP address of the router, and select a Severity level.

    You can choose any logging severity value.

  5. Click Next.


  6. After the system generates the script, click Execute.
