If you are not sure about Syslog, please read our Syslog tutorial.

Question 1

Explanation

The “service timestamps log” command configures the system to apply a time stamp to logging messages. The time-stamp format for datetime is MMM DD HH:MM:SS, where MMM is the month, DD is the date, HH is the hour (in 24-hour notation), MM is the minute, and SS is the second. With the additional keyword msec, the system includes milliseconds in the time stamp, in the format HH:DD:MM:SS.mmm, where .mmm is milliseconds.

Question 2

Explanation

Syslog levels are listed below

Level Keyword Description
0 emergencies System is unusable
1 alerts Immediate action is needed
2 critical Critical conditions exist
3 errors Error conditions exist
4 warnings Warning conditions exist
5 notification Normal, but significant, conditions exist
6 informational Informational messages
7 debugging Debugging messages

The highest level is level 0 (emergencies). The lowest level is level 7. By default, the router will send informational messages (level 6). That means it will send all the syslog messages from level 0 to 6.

Question 3

Explanation

Syslog levels are listed below

Level Keyword Description
0 emergencies System is unusable
1 alerts Immediate action is needed
2 critical Critical conditions exist
3 errors Error conditions exist
4 warnings Warning conditions exist
5 notification Normal, but significant, conditions exist
6 informational Informational messages
7 debugging Debugging messages

If we specify “logging trap warning” then logging messages from “emergencies” to “warnings” are sent out.

Question 4

Explanation

Syslog levels are listed below:

Level Keyword Description
0 emergencies System is unusable
1 alerts Immediate action is needed
2 critical Critical conditions exist
3 errors Error conditions exist
4 warnings Warning conditions exist
5 notification Normal, but significant, conditions exist
6 informational Informational messages
7 debugging Debugging messages

The highest level is level 0 (emergencies). The lowest level is level 7. By default, the router will send informational messages (level 6). That means it will send all the syslog messages from level 0 to 6.

Question 5

Explanation

By default if we type “show logging” command we will see the Syslog logging has been enabled -> A is not correct.

The syslog messages are stored in the internal buffer of the device. The buffer size is limited to few kilobytes. However, when the device reboots, these syslog messages are lost -> B is correct; C is correct; D is not correct.

Question 6


Explanation

From the second line of the output, we learned that Fa0/1 interface was shut down so we see the “changed state to administratively down”. The third and fourth line is the result of this action, which cause Fa0/1 interface “changed state to down” and the EIGRP neighbor relationship with 10.10.11.2 was down.

    @9tut in here Q5 you say:
    B. Messages are stored in the internal memory of device
    C. Messages can be erased when device reboots
    But in new questions Quiz Q36 of first 40 you say:
    A. Disabled by default
    D. Stored external to the device.
    There is no coherence.
    In my opinion, the correct ones are B&C but then, there is a mistake on the first 40 new questions quiz(Q36).
    Tks and good job.

    If it can help, I found thes extract from https://supportforums.cisco.com/discussion/12001256/cisco-devices-syslog-monitoring-and-user-monitoring-tools.

    Configuring Cisco Devices to Use a Syslog Server

    Internal buffer— The device’s operating system allocates a small part of memory buffers to log the most recent messages. The buffer size is limited to few kilobytes. This option is enabled by default. However, when the device reboots, these syslog messages are lost.

    My advice to all of you don’t depend on dumps because its not going to help you in the real world networking. Read books, watch videos, and practice. Good luck everyone

    Passed today,
    9xx , it was a hard work. I agree with the above, don’t rely on dumps, I had the ones from IT-Libraries and they were accurate but for examples on the labs the ip were changed .
