Surpress big-ip log, generated in stand-by nodes when I do configsync

Dear all,

I've faced the problem that stand-by node generates monitor status log into /var/log/ltm when I executed "bigpipe config sync all" command.

This symptom itself doesn't matter for server status, because it's "Pool member <IPADDRESS> monitor status up", showing my pool member works correctly, but it does matter when we get into such a environment that all logs are exported to mail notification system using syslog-ng, and so is my environment.

The message"monitor status up" of stand-by node when I execute "bigpipe config sync" is very annoysome, but I cannot remove it completely because usually it show crucial pool member status.

Does anybody know how to surpress messages from stand-by nodes when I do configuration sync?
Any website, documentation or ideas are appreciated.

Many thanks,
Rtree

I'm 99% sure you can't.  When you do the config sync it is basically reloading the config which re-drives all of the monitors to verify that everything is up and running.

Thanks jiltjr! I'm considering the mothos including writing some scripts or editing syslog-ng.conf, so anybody other ideas? and I've observed that v9.4.8 doesn't generate monitor status up log, despite the behavior of v9.1.2, so confirmation document of what logs are generated is also appreciated!

Thanks,

I'll have to check at work tomorrow.  We are at 9.4.3 and I thought it generated the messages.  However, we have applied a hotfix since we originally deployed the box so it could have changed.

O.K, we are at  9.4.4 HF1 (build level 73.1) and we do NOT get the messages about anything being active.  We do get messages for resources that are disabled.

The boxes came with 9.4.3 and I was fairly sure we got the messages then.  However we did upgrade right after we started configuring the boxes, which was two years ago, so my memory may be going bad on me.

ok, thanks for your confirmation, and I come to think about the possibility that F5 may change the behavior of what messages are generated around v9 minor update, so I'm going to do confirmation to F5 about this topic. Thank you very much.

Best regards,
