Enabling Error Log Counting

Problem

You wish to see the number and type of log messages created by the router.

Solution

Use the logging count command to enable error log counting:

Router2#configure terminal 
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router2(config)#logging count
Router2(config)#end
Router2#

 

Discussion

The logging count command causes the router to maintain a count and timestamp of each recorded log type. To view the results of the log counting, use the show logging count command:

Router2#show logging count

Router2#

Notice that the router displays a nice overview of error log messages that have occurred and a timestamp of the most recent occurrence. The router also groups log messages by type, keeping all NTP-related messages together, for instance.

On the highlighted output line, notice that the router's configuration has been modified 23 times since log counting was enabled. Also notice the last recorded message was July 15 at 20:11. Note that the "Sev" column indicates the log message's severity level.

Unfortunately, Cisco doesn't provide an easy way to clear these statistics. The only way to reset the logging count values is to reload the router.
