Syslog Level :Emerg - system is unusable

Engager

Hi all, so i have been trying to set up the Home Monitor app and for a while nothing was being indexed so I i had a look on wireshark to see if anything was getting through and i got the following error

Level :Emerg - system is unusable (0).

I have configured splunk to receive the log file over UDP 514 as suggested.

I have no idea how to address this problem. I have done a fair bit of googling to try and find an answer or even where to start in terms of addressing the issue but no luck.

Any help in this space would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Anu

Where are you getting that error? Is it a syslog message coming in on UDP/514?

This is the error i find within wireshark. Yeah the capture in wireshark shows that the syslog message is coming in on UDP/514

Sounds like a problem with your source device most of all...

I've been looking and have not been able to find a cause or a reason for this error message. Send me an email and I'll see if we can't troubleshoot this issue a bit further. Send me an email and I'll see what could be behind this error.

The problem seems to be linked to a lack of a logging function on my device.
