The following tables, groups, and variables are supported in this MIB.

Table/Group Supported Variables Comments
etsysSyslogServer table group etsysSyslogServerMaxEntries

The maximum number of entries allowed in the etsysSyslogServerTable.



The number of entries currently in the etsysSyslogServerTable.



This object indicates the numerically lowest available index within this entity, which may be used for the value of etsysSyslogServerIndex in the creation of a new entry in the etsysSyslogServerTable.

An index is considered available if the index value falls within the range of 1 to 16 and is not being used to index an existing entry in the etsysSyslogServerTable contained within this entity.

A value of zero indicates that all of the entries in the etsysSyslogServerTable are currently in use.

This value should only be considered a guideline for management creation of etsysSyslogServerEntries, there is no requirement on management to create entries based upon this index value.


etsysSyslogServer Table etsysSyslogServerTable

A table containing Syslog server information.



Defines the information to generate syslog messages to an aggregating agent or server.

Entries within this table with an access level of read- create MUST be considered non-volatile and MUST be maintained across entity resets.



A unique arbitrary identifier for this syslog server.



Administratively assigned textual description of this syslog server.

Not supported


The type of Internet address by which the Syslog server is specified in etsysSyslogServerAddress.

Only IPv4 and IPv6 are supported for etysysSyslogServerAddressType



The Internet address for the Syslog message server.

The use of DNS domain names is discouraged, and agent support for them is optional. Deciding when, and how often, to resolve them is an issue. Not resolving them often enough means you might lose synchronization with the associated entry in the DNS server, and resolving them too often might leave you without access to the Syslog server during critical network events.



The UDP port number the client is using to send requests to this server.

If an entity only supports sending messages using a single UDP port to all servers then this may optionally be implemented read-only, in which case the current value of etsysSyslogServerDefaultUdpPort will be used.



The syslog facility (local0-local7) that will be encoded in messages sent to this server.

If an entity only supports encoding a single facility in all messages to all servers then this may optionally be implemented read-only, in which case the current value of etsysSyslogServerDefaultFacility will be used.



The maximum severity level of the messages that should be forwarded to the syslog server. The higher the level, the lower the severity.

If an entity only supports filtering based on a single severity level for all servers then this may optionally be implemented read-only, in which case the current value of etsysSyslogServerDefaultSeverity will be used.



This object allows for the dynamic creation and deletion of entries within the etsysSyslogServerTable as well as the activation and deactivation of these entries.

When this object's value is set to notInService(2) this server will not be sent any messages, nor will any of its counters be incremented.

The agent should not delete a row, except in the case of the loss of persistent storage.

Refer to the RowStatus convention for further details on the behavior of this object.



The name of the local system virtual router that traffic sent to this syslog server should be associated with.

Writing this object with a zero length string sets the virtual router name to its default value.

The default value for etsysSyslogServerVirtualRouterName is VR-Mgmt.


The Syslog Server Defaults etsysSyslogServerDefaultUdpPort
The default UDP port number that the managed entity is using to send syslog messages. This value will be used as the default value for etsysSyslogServerUdpPort when creating rows in the etsysSyslogServerTable and either:
  • no value is specified for etsysSyslogServerUdpPort
  • etsysSyslogServerUdpPort is implemented read-only.
If etsysSyslogServerUdpPort is implemented read-only, and this value is changed, it should affect the UDP port that is used to send syslog messages to all servers as soon as it is practical.

This parameter value is maintained across system reboots.

etsysSyslogServerDefaultUdpPort value is 514.
