Request for new Syslog message for Failover/Rollback and Slave's WAN link/Power Down


#1

Hi Peplink Team,

We have received a request from a potential customer about additional Syslog messages that would help
them understand exactly what’s going on with Balance VRRP status.

What are the odds of getting the following requests implemented in the next firmware and if they’re acceptable,
then about when will it be released to the public?

#Requests

  1. Send easy to understand Failover/Rollback from/to Master/Slave msg
  2. Send syslog msg when a slave unit’s power goes down
  3. Send syslog msg when a slave unit’s WAN link goes down
  4. Set multiple Syslog servers to give customers more flexibility

All the syslog messages I see are as follows:
#The customer is evaluating Balance1350 but the following is from Balance380.
But I’d think that all the messages are the same across all Balance models?
