In the later versions of PowerConnect a filter for the SLG1 metric has been introduced.
The SLG1 logs can be quite large, so we have introduced a filter to be a to exclude some logs that were not required in Splunk.
However it is necessary to place a default entry into the filter so metrics are collected.
Hit “Enter” key again
Confirm SLG1 is active
Return to main screen
The SLG1 filter is located in the menu Administrator -> Metric filters -> SLG1 filter
Select “New Entries”
Add the following line and select active (the first is “I” for “Include” and the second is the number one):
* * * I 1
All SLG1 logs metrics will now be collected and sent to Splunk. If you would like to exclude specific logs from being collected please review KB 036 – PowerConnect SP10 SLG1 metric configuration
