HP Procurve switch syslog change detection

We use syslog messages to enable change detection on our cisco network equipment.  We also would like to do this on on our hp provurves.  But I cannot see any messages in the switches log that reflects a config change.  Is there anyway to enable this?

is there an SNMP trap for it?
.. Which version of procurve interface are you on? could you post a screenshot?

Thanks for your comment.

As an example on a procurve 2825, the system log looks as follows:

W 03/31/10 11:37:26 FFI: port 4 Duplex Mismatch. Reconfig port to Auto.
W 03/31/10 11:37:26 FFI: port 4-Excessive CRC/alignment errors. See help
W 03/31/10 11:37:47 FFI: port 4 Duplex Mismatch. Reconfig port to Auto.
W 03/31/10 11:37:47 FFI: port 4-Excessive CRC/alignment errors. See help
I 03/31/10 11:44:59 mgr: SME SSH from - MANAGER Mode
I 03/31/10 11:44:59 tftp: Transfer completed
I 03/31/10 11:45:06 tftp: Transfer completed

So you can see there is a log of me backing up the config and port flapping...but nothing if I do a "write mem".  This is the local log on the switch.  I have also set the switch to trap and syslog to a managment server.  There is nothing there either to suggest the config has been changed.

We've had no luck with this, not possible on HP
