The information that is logged varies depending on the device. Common log messages are SNMP_TRAP_LINK_UP and SNMP_TRAP_LINK_DOWN, which are logged when an interface changes state.

The History page shows event logs specific to the interface.

Events that are logged include the following:

  • When the interface was created
  • Disable and enable actions
  • Any changes to the port name

Click Toggle Details to view more information about the event.
