local0 ... local7 Specifies the local syslog facility.


Enabled, for memory buffer, NVRAM, primary MSM, and backup MSM/MM; all other targets are disabled by default.

Usage Guidelines

This command stops sending messages to the specified target. By default, the memory buffer, NVRAM, primary MSM/MM, and backup MSM/MM targets are enabled. Other targets must be enabled before messages are sent to those targets.

Configuration changes to the session target are in effect only for the duration of the console display or telnet session, and are not saved in FLASH. Changes to the other targets are saved to FLASH.

You can also use the following command to disable displaying the log on the console: disable log display

The disable log display command is equivalent to disable log target console-display command.

Modular Switches Only

Note that the backup-msm target is only active on the primary MSM/MM, and the primary-msm target is only active on the backup MSM/MM.


The following example disables log messages to the current session:
