Disabling Syslogs

Hi,

I've enabled syslog logg on our controllers, but need to turn off the wireless logs as they are swamping our syslog servers.
But i cant seem to disable them.

under the show run | inc logging command I can only see;logging level informational network
logging level critical security
logging level errors user
logging level errors wireless

If i use the no logging level errors wireless command it turns the wireless logs to warning as shown below.

LOGGING LEVELS
--------------
Facility Level
-------- -----
network informational
security critical
system warnings
user errors
wireless warnings

Can anyone suggest anything?

Thanks.

There are three ways:

By default, syslog messages are configured at the "warning" level, which gives you the best balance between important and not too much. You could configure that like this:

config t
logging level warning network
logging level warning security
logging level warning system
logging level warning user
logging level warning wireless

You can also opt to turn syslog and traps for those aps off (not advised) by putting APs in maintenance mode (sorry, this was copied verbatim from the user guide):

AP Maintenance Mode
You can configure APs to suppress traps and syslog messages related to those APs. Known as AP maintenance mode, this setting in the AP system profile is particularly useful when deploying, maintaining, or upgrading the network. If enabled, APs stop flooding unnecessary traps and syslog messages to network management systems or network operations centers during a deployment or scheduled maintenance. The controller still generates debug syslog messages if debug logging is enabled. After completing the network maintenance, disable AP maintenance mode to ensure all traps and syslog messages are sent. AP maintenance mode is disabled by default.
Configuring AP maintenance mode in the WebUI
1. Navigate to the Configuration > Wireless > AP Configuration page. 2. Select either the AP Group or AP Specific tab. Click Edit for the AP group or AP name. 3. Under Profiles, select AP to display the AP profiles.
4. Select the AP system profile you want to modify.
5. Under Profile Details, do the following:
␣ To enable AP maintenance mode, check (select) the Maintenance Mode checkbox.
␣ To disable AP maintenance mode, clear (deselect) the Maintenance Mode checkbox.
6. Click Apply.

Last but not least, you can opt to NOT send syslog to that server at all:

config t
no logging a.b.c.d
