How to dump ALL console message to a syslog file

As per title. I would like to collect ALL message from a machine and dumping them inside a syslog file of 10 MB size that will overwrite it once it is reaching the size limit.

 

Is that possible and how?

 - Some devices support

pipe

command as to redirect output to  a file when showing the logs , and then copy file to external repository with tftp or scp. Note that it is always better to have a syslog server in place for operational follow-up and keeping longtime-logs as you wanted and or then your initial question 'disappears'

 - As far as the first part of your question is concerned the

logging trap ...

command will determine the verbosity of syslog messages being send to the syslog server ,

logging trap debugging

being everything.

Hi,

i don't have a syslog server, i need to dump inside a single 10MB file  in the router itself for further reading
