Introduction

System logs record internal events that occur on the virtualized network function (VNF) manager app. System log messages include field description, message explanation, and recommended action, and provide reference for system analysis and maintenance.

This document assumes that the readers are familiar with data communications technologies and the H3C VNF manager app.

Viewing system log messages

On the H3C VCF controller interface, click ASSURANCE on the top navigation bar, select Logs from the navigation pane, and click the System Log tab to enter system log view. The generated system log messages are displayed on pages as shown in Figure 1. The system logs with the origin as VNFM are generated by the VNFM manager app.

Table 1 System log message elements

Element

Description

Severity

Severity level of the message. For more information about severity levels, see Table 4.

Time

Date and time when the log message was generated.

IP

IP address of the VCF controller where the VNF manager app resides.

Name of the service module that produced the message. For more information about service modules, see 错误!未找到引用源。. The name of the VNF manager app is displayed as VNFM.

Topic

Topic for the log message.

Description

Text string that contains detailed information about the event or error.

 

Syslog message format

The VNF manager app can use the H3C VCF controller on which it resides to send system logs to syslog servers through the syslog protocol. To set the IP address and port number of a syslog server, click the System icon  in the upper right corner, select Parameters from the navigation pane, and select System Log on the page.

By default, the system logs sent through the syslog protocol are in the following format:

<PRI>TIMESTAMP Hostname Origin/severity/Keywords CONTENT

Table 2 Syslog message elements

Element

Description

<PRI>

Priority identifier. It is calculated by using the following formula:

Priority identifier=facilityx8+severity

Where:

·     Facility represents the programming module defined by syslog. In the current software version, the facility is user-level and its value is 1.

·     Severity represents the syslog message severity level. For more information, see Table 3.

TIMESTAMP

Date and time when the event occurred.

Hostname

Name or IP address of the server or virtual machine where the VCF controller that produced the message resides.
