Linux Log All SCSI Events To Syslog

How can I log all SCSI events to syslog system under CentOS or Fedora or RHEL or Red hat Linux operating systems?

If you need scsi logging, use /proc/sys/dev/scsi/logging_level kernel variable. Set it as follows:

  • -1 – Enable scsi events to syslog.
  • 0 – Disable scsi events to syslog.

Turn it on, enter:

 /proc/sys/dev/scsi/logging_lev

Please note this will result into large amount of entries in syslog per second. To turn it off, enter:

 /proc/sys/dev/scsi/logging_lev

I strongly suggest that you setup syslog to log to an external syslog server on your LAN for performance reasons.

Sysadmin because even developers need heroes!!!
