Juniper JunOS Syslog Structure

Juniper JunOS appliances can produce syslog event messages based on the following format.

[syslog header] TAG [junos@xxx key-value pairs] message-text
  • TAG is a string comprised of a category prefix and a log id suffix in the form of prefix_suffix (e.g. RT_FLOW_SESSION_CLOSE, where the category is RT and the log id is FLOW_SESSION_CLOSE).
  • key-value pairs : key-value pairs are specific to each category/log id and they contain general information about the event.
  • message-text : Message text is a string sentence that provides additional event information in human readable form. The string’s structure is based on the associated TAG.
