- To change the logging level for PBX, enter the following:

To check the current verbosity, enter the following:
PBX may log messages by default to the UNIX system logs (
/var/adm/syslog) or to the Windows Event Log. As a result, the system logs may fill up with unnecessary PBX log messages, since the messages are also written to the PBX logs:
- To disable PBX logging to the system logs or event logs, enter the following command:
# vxlogcfg -a -p 50936 -o 103 -s LogToOslog=false
You do not have to restart PBX for this setting to take effect.
