Search SysLog messages



Hello, I have set up SysLog to receive messages from my Cisco router using the default configuration, and I can see the messages in the Overview tab. Apparently my router crashed on 31 December at 4:00 pm, and I am looking for the Messages for that time. I am not seeing any practical way to view message content for that time. If I use the Overview or Messages tab, I end up seemingly forever clicking the right arrow forever moving back a very short period amount of time. If I use the Historic Data tap and filter, I don't have the message content. Is their a easy way for me to look at past messages? Thanks

Hello there,

You can filter those messages by clicking on the top right Show Filters in the Messages tab. There you can select a specific time span and other filter options.

Please let us know if this fits your requirements.

Kind regards,
Birk Guttmann, Tech Support Team
