KB 056 – SLG1 Filter Initial Setup

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.
