Configuring the Device to Output Logs to a Log File

Configuring the Device to Output Logs to a Log File


After logs are output to a log file, you can view the log file anytime to monitor the device status based on the logs.


  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run info-center logfile channel { channel-number | channel-name }

    A channel through which logs are output to a log file is specified.

    By default, the device uses channel 9 to output logs to a log file.

  3. Run info-center source { module-name | default } channel { channel-number | channel-name } log { state { off | on } | level severity } *

    A rule for outputting logs to a channel is set.

    By default, channel 9 is enabled to output logs and the lowest log severity is debugging.

  4. (Optional) Run info-center logfile size size

    The log file size is set.

    By default, the log file size is 8 MB.

    • If the size of a log file generated on the device exceeds the configured log file size, the system decompresses the log file into a zip file.

    • You can run the save logfile command to save information to a log file.

  5. (Optional) Run info-center max-logfile-number filenumbers

    The maximum number of log files that can be saved is set.

    By default, a maximum of 200 log files can be saved.

    If the number of log files generated on the Switch exceeds the limit, the system deletes the oldest log file.

  6. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.
