Cisco ASA 5510 logging ACL denies without "log" keyword with WARNING severity

I've enabled logging (logging enable) on our Cisco ASA 5510. I have an ACL on our outside interface. I see many deny log entries with a warning (level 4) severity, but I don't have the "log" keyword enabled on any of the ACL entries in the referenced ACL. Does anyone know where the warning (level 4) denies are coming from, and how I can stop them?

Hi,

 

   The ASA firewall, by default, logs anytime there is an ACE match in your ACL for a new flow, with or without the "log" keyword being configured. If you don't specify the log keyword you get a "106023" system message, if you do specify the log keyword you get a "106100" system message. If you don't want the ASA to log at all, configure the ACE with the "log disable" option. Like for example:

access-list ACL-OUTSIDE-IN line 9 extended deny udp any any log disable

Cristian Matei.
