Logbuffer was not updating asfter configuring info-center with loghost option.
output of display info-center was:
x.x.x.x, channel number 4, channel name log,
language English , host facility local7, binary loghost, port number is x
enabled,max buffer size 1024, current buffer size 512,
current messages 51, channel number : 4, channel name : logbuffer
dropped messages 0, overwritten messages 0
First step was to check if log messages were sent ot the loghost. Messages were recorded on the server so the problem clearly was due to misuse of info-center channels. To correct this we used channel 2 (default loghost channel) for the loghost configuration and channel 4 (default logbuffer channel) for the logbuffer. Command sequence can be found below:
info-center channel 2 name Name
info-center source default channel 2 log level notification
info-center loghost x.x.x.x channel 2 binary x
info-center logbuffer channel 4
The root cause of this issue was that the loghost and logbuffer used the same info-center channel.
Whenever possible use the default channel for their intended purpose (ex: channel 2 --> loghost). If it's not possible configure a custom channel instead of using a predefined one for a different info-center application.
