system syslog rate-limit burst

Sets the burst count, that is, the maximum number of messages that a process can add to syslog during a logging interval.

set system syslog rate-limit burst number-of-log-entries
delete system syslog rate-limit burst
show system syslog rate-limit burst
number-of-log-entries
The burst count, a number that ranges from 1 through 4294967295 (4,294,967,295).

Configuration mode


system {
    syslog {
        rate-limit{
            burst number-of-log-entries                
        }
    }
}

Use this command to set the burst count. The system discards the extra messages that exceed the burst count and adds a syslog entry to that effect. To set the logging interval, refer to system syslog rate-limit interval. For more information about rate limiting for syslog logging, refer to Configuring rate limiting for syslog logging.

Use the set form of this command to set the burst count.

Use the delete form of this command to reset the burst count to 200 messages (default).
Note: If the interval for syslog logging is not configured, using the delete form of this command disables syslog rate liming; there are no limits on how many messages a process can log.

Use the show form of this command to display the burst count.
