sending 'show ip ospf neighbor' command result to syslog

Hello,

I need to analyse in my syslog server (Splunk) the toppology on my router network (about 1000 routers).

I suppose that activating the normal OSPF logs and sending then to the syslog server would not be enough because, in this case I would get only some log when some events like route reconfiguration occur (or when special OSPF timers trigger).

So, ideally I would like to run everyday (automatically) the command 'show ip ospf neighbor' and get the result directly in my syslog server.

Is there a way to do so ?

Many thanks for helping !

Hi there,

the following EEM script will run the command at midday every day and output the result into the log buffer:

event manager applet FOO
event timer cron cron-entry "00 12 * * *"
action 1.0 cli command "enable"
action 2.0 cli command "show ip ospf neigh"
action 3.0 syslog msg "$_cli_result"
action 4.0 cli command "exit"

cheers,

Seb.
