🛈 This script can not be used on its own but requires the base installation. See main README for details.
RouterOS supports sending log messages via e-mail or to a syslog server. This has some limitation, however:
- does not work early after boot if network connectivity is not yet established
- lots of messages generate a flood of mails
- Matrix and Telegram are not supported
The script is intended to be run periodically. It collects log messages and forwards them via notification.
Just install the script:
... and add a scheduler:
/ system scheduler add interval=1m name=log-forward on-event="/ system script run log-forward;" start-time=startup;
The configuration goes to
global-config-overlay, these are the parameters:
LogForwardFilter: define topics not to be forwarded
LogForwardFilterMessage: define message text not to be forwarded
LogForwardInclude: define topics to be forwarded (even if filter matches)
LogForwardIncludeMessage: define message text to be forwarded (even if filter matches)
Also notification settings are required for e-mail, matrix and/or telegram.
