log file on Catalyst 3560

Is it possible to setup some sort of log on my Catalyst 3560? My circuit has been going down around the same time frame for the past 4 days. I'd like to setup a log so I can go back to see what happens at that time. The carrier said that the circuit is fine at each time. Thanks

Are you asking to log to your switches buffer:

conf t
logging buffered x (x being buffer size)

to a syslog server

logging host x.x.x.x (x being ip address of syslog server)

Yes this is for the logging buffer. What is the recommended buffer size that I can configure?

Depends on the amount of memory you have in your switch.

sh memory

You don't want to make it too large and take up too much of your switches memory. Also, logging to the buffer, the older messages will eventually get overwritten by the newer messages when the buffer get to its limit. I would suggess logging to a syslog server. Plenty of free options out there.
