23.4. Procedure – Changing log verbosity level of PSM

Purpose: 

The logging level of PSM can be set separately for every protocol. To change the verbosity level of PSM, complete the following steps:

Note

The Basic Settings > Management > Debug logging > Enable debug logs option is not related to the verbosity of traffic logs: it increases the log level of the non-network-related events, for example adds the commands executed by the PSM web interface to the logs, and so on

Figure 23.4. <Protocol name> Control > Global Options — Changing the verbosity level

<Protocol name> Control > Global Options — Changing the verbosity level

Steps: 

  1. Navigate to the Global Options page of the traffic you want to change the log level of, for example, to SSH Control > Global Options to change the log level of SSH traffic, RDP Control > Global Options for remote desktop traffic, and so on.

  2. Select the desired log level from the Verbosity level field.

    Note

    The verbosity level ranges from 1 (no logging) to 10 (extremely detailed), with level 4 being the default normal level. To debug complex problems, you might have to increase the verbosity level to 6. Higher level is needed only in extreme cases.

    Note that high verbosity levels generate very large amount of log messages.
