  • disabled – Logging is not activated.
  • enabled – (default) Logging is activated.
  • rollfile

 Accounting logs cannot be disabled.

File Count

The number of event log files that will be maintained for this event type. All event types will overwrite the oldest file when the file count is exceeded. A warning will be issued when the count approaches the maximum. Enter a value between the range 1and 2048.

File Size

The maximum size (in KB) that a single event log file will ever grow to. Enter a value between in the range (256..65535) KB

Message Queue Size

The number of event log message entries to buffer before writing them to disk. The size may be a value between 2 and 32 (inclusive). Enter a value between in the range 2 and 32.

Save To

Save events. The values are:

  • None - Events are not saved
  • Disk - Events are saved to Disk

Filter Level

The filter severity level of events. Events that are at least as severe as the designated level will be logged. no events type suppresses all events of this type from being logged.

Rollover Start Time

Specifies the start time for event log rollover. The format is CCYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS. For example: 2010-01-01T01:01:01.

Rollover Interval

File Write Mode

Identifies event log NFS write mode. The values are:

  • DEFAULT - Log data is written to NFS as 1344 byte packet.

NOTE: You must enable the global callTrace signalingPacketCapture parameter (set state to "enable") to capture SIP and H.323 packets (refer to Call Trace - CLI for configuration details).

Once signalingPacketCapture is enabled, any subsequent changes to SBC device configurations or filter information will not be available to signaling packet captures until signalingPacketCapture is reset (state is disabled, and then re-enabled).
