😱 So you configured syslog on your event broker and now you're getting a bunch of events. They look like they have a whole bunch of info, but what the heck do all those numbers mean!?

2021-03-12T18:56:04.763+00:00 <local3.info> b0e95afab69a event: CLIENT: CLIENT_CLIENT_CLOSE_FLOW: default MJD-MacBook-Pro.local/99173/#00180001/PUynRA3IoH Client (52) MJD-MacBook-Pro.local/99173/#00180001/PUynRA3IoH username default Pub f low session flow name 0440a8604d3b497f963e9543cb9d2580 (10), transacted session id -1, publisher id 9, last message id 63, window size 1, final statistics - flow(0, 0, 0, 63, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 63)

2021-03-12T18:56:04.772+00:00 <local3.info> b0e95afab69a event: CLIENT: CLIENT_CLIENT_DISCONNECT: default MJD-MacBook-Pro.local/99173/#00180001/PUynRA3IoH Client (52) MJD-MacBook-Pro.local/99173/#00180001/PUynRA3IoH username default WebSe ssionId (N/A) reason(Peer TCP Closed) final statistics - dp(66, 129, 63, 0, 129, 129, 1240, 4288, 22743, 0, 23983, 4288, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0) conn(0, 0, 172.17.0.1:62406, CLSWT, 0, 0, 0) zip(0, 0, 0, 0, 0.00, 0.00, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0) web(0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0), SslVersion(), SslCipher()

✅ You're in luck!** You can grab the name of the event, such as "CLIENT: CLIENT_CLIENT_DISCONNECT" and look them up on the SolOS-TR Message Bus Management Syslog Events page.

The page has a tree structure that allows you to choose which type of event you're looking for (SYSTEM, VPN, CLIENT) and go from there.

😁 When you find what you're looking for it will give you some info around what each of those numbers mean.

    Yes! This is very useful information!

    I showed a client once how they can subscribe to system log messages for client connect/disconnects and use those messages to implement logic into their apps on what actions to take.

    Here is my post on how you can subscribe to log messages as events:
