Creating a log publisher

Create a log publisher to specify where the BIG-IP system sends alert messages.
If you want alerts sent to a remote syslog server, you need to create two log publishers, one for the local syslog server and one for the remote syslog server.
  1. On the Main tab, click
    System
    Logs
    Configuration
    Log Publishers
    .
    The Log Publishers screen opens.
  2. Click
    Create
    .
  3. In the
    Name
    field, type a unique, identifiable name for this publisher.
  4. For the
    Destinations
    setting, select
    local-syslog
    from the
    Available
    list, and click
    <<
    to move the destination to the
    Selected
    list.
  5. Click
    Finished
    .
    The list of Log Publishers appears, showing the Log Publisher you just created.
  6. If you want to have alerts sent to a remote syslog server, repeat steps 2-5, and at step 4 select the log destination that you created previously from the
    Available
    list.
