Do not flag all Firewall log entries as Alerts

I am using the “Send Events to Remote Syslog Server” feature in firmware 8.1.1 to send events to a Synology NAS. The NAS is running SRM version 6.2.4 and the data appears in the Log Center app on the NAS. I am also doing URL logging to the same destination.

As shown below, URL Logging has a severity level of Info and the firewall log records have a severity level of Alert.

Like a Peplink router, a Synology NAS can send emails when bad things happen. One bad thing is a log with an Alert. As a result, the NAS is spamming me with an email for every firewall record.

Maybe flag firewall logs as Info? Maybe let us choose?

I suppose this can be changed as Info. I can understand having Synology Syslog Server to send an alert email. I shall come back a bit to see anyone in our community has comment/concern on this.

Should it be info for allowed and alert for blocked?

Make sense to me. There should be no concern from the development perspective. @Michael234 What do you think of that?

That is fine with me. Thanks.

@Jonathan_Pitts @Michael234 Alright! That should settle the requirements and we shall proceed with the request and plan on our firmware release.


Thanks Eddy!

@Jonathan_Pitts @Michael234 For your information, we have decided to use Notice for log level on Firewall Allowed Logging.

Thank you for that.

sounds good.

Forgot to mention that this request has been implemented onto 8.1.2 RC3. Hence, you can test with it.


Thanks again.
