CiscoWorks Resource Manager Essentials (RME) has a feature called SyslogAnalyzer which can run automated actions based on certain syslog messages it receives. One of the action types is to execute a script. That action type can be used to have RME forward the contents of a syslog message to another syslog server (or even multiple remote syslog servers). This will work with any version of RME 4.0 and higher including LMS 4.0.
To do this, first copy the following Perl code into a text file on the RME server. Name the file syslog_forward.pl.
use Sys::Syslog qw(:DEFAULT setlogsock);
my $msg = $ARGV;
$Sys::Syslog::host = 'X.X.X.X';
In this script, the string X.X.X.X needs to be replaced with the IP address of the remote syslog server.
Copy this file to the following location.
(NOTE: NMSROOT is the path into which CiscoWorks was installed. By default, this is C:\PROGRA~1\CSCOpx.)
Next, create another file in the same directory into which you copied syslog_forward.pl. On Windows, this file should be named syslog_forward.bat. On Solaris, the file should be named syslog_forward.sh. The file must contain the following.
On Windows, make sure casuser has permissions to Read & Execute C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe.
Now the automated action needs to be defined in the GUI. Go to RME > Tools > Syslog > Automated Actions (LMS 3.x) or Monitor > Fault Settings > Syslog > Automated Actions (LMS 4.0), and create a new Automated Action. Select the device or devices to which the action will apply, or leave the default radio button for all devices selected. Next, add a syslog message pattern. Since RME will be forwarding syslogs, a pattern of all asterisks (i.e. forward all syslog messages) is probably desirable.
Click Next then select "Script" as the type of action, and choose the syslog_forward.bat (Windows) or syslog_forward.sh (Solaris) script.
Finally, click Finish, and now any message RME receives that matches your filter pattern (any message in this example) will be forwarded to your remote syslog server.

Regarding the sizing of an SD-Access Transit Control Plane node, will a pair of Cisco 9300 switches be sufficient for a 3-site design (hospitals) where there would be anywhere between 4000 and 6000 active endpoints per site at any one time and approx 50 f...
Hi Allits been a long time since I looked at the basics :). Do switches use the cam table or tcam table for Mac learning ?also, if we were to add say 300 access list control entries and apply to a switch port, would this cause any negative impact to ...
