Feature request - Multiple logs instances

Mon Oct 23, 2017 5:33 pm

Dear Mikrotik team,

Please review a possibility to add multiple separate log instances, like it was in earlier Dude versions.
This may help us to log different events in appropriate instance in order to group them.

Thank you!

I've been in the process of migrating from The Dude v4 to v6.42.2. I quickly realized that the logging capability is limited to send all syslog events to a single log file. I would like to be able to define multiple notifications of type 'log' and each of these show up as logging 'topics' in RouterOS. I could then utilize the Regexp filter in The Dude Settings > Syslog screen to send different types of logs to different files:

Since the 'log'-type notifications would show up as topics in RouterOS, I could send them to different files this way:

/system logging action add disk-file-name=webfilter.log name=webfilter target=disk
/system logging action add disk-file-name=WAP.log name=WAPs target=disk
/system logging add action=webfilter topics=dude,"log web traffic"
/system logging add action=WAPs topics=dude,"log WAP events"
