Hi all,

We are trying to analyze the Syslog from Polycom, such as server.log, access.log, etc.

However, we don't understand the content of those logs.
Is there any place we can get a detailed description of those logs?

Typical application logs... it will be hard to get a lot out of them without vendor help. I would start with a basic parser to make it usable.

^(?<timestamp>.*?)\|(?<loglevel>.*?)\|(?<thread>.*?)\|(?<pid>.*?)\|(?<module>.*?)\|\s(?<message>.*?)$

Then you will have to go through each of them and pull out useful data. Some of the message use a key:value format while others use a key[value] format.

Yes, you may be right. We need vendor's help with the content.

Normally you'd find that in the documentation of the product that is producing those logs. If not there, than your guess is as good as mine.

You could post a few sample events here, see if someone recognizes it.

Yes, normally. But this time, there's no any detail in Polycom's manual or maybe I didn't find the right one. Here's some sample event from server.log.
