On this page, you can define in detail how the system log (syslog) is supposed to work.


For the syslog to work correctly, you have to do the following:


  • Allow the syslog port in the firewall settings. You can do it in Settings Syst. settings Security.
  • Set server_ip correctly in Settings Syst. settings General. Enter the IP address of the ISPadmin server. All MikroTik routers will send data from their system logs to this IP address.


 General configuration of syslog


syslog_enable Activate / deactivate the syslog server. After installation, the function is not active. Therefore, it is necessary to activate it.
syslog_store_days Set how long data are to be stored on the server (default: 14 days).
syslog_store_lines Set how many entries are to be stored in the database (default: 250000).




On this page, you can add, edit and delete filters that will force the system to discard entries containing the text that you have entered.


Examples of filters:


user admin .* in from 
user admin logged out from


If you add these filters to the system, logins / logouts of ISPadmin to / from MikroTik routers will not be recorded in the syslog. These particular filters are useful, as there can be quite a large number of login/logout entries and they have a low informative value.


Selection of monitored items


Here you can define which groups of messages from routers will be monitored. You can deactivate / activate individual items in the list by clicking on icon check ok and icon check ko.

icon info2 When you are configuring the syslog for the first time, it is recommended that you activate only a limited number of items and monitor the behaviour of the system. If everything is all right, you can activate further items. If you begin to monitor too many items and your server is not powerful enough, it might happen that your server will be busy!
