JNCIP Case Study - 1 Pg 42 - archive size and files

Modify the syslog parameters to log all interactive CLI commands to a file called rn-cli, where n is equal to the router number. Configure the CLI log to permit four archived copies that will be no larger than 128K, and ensure that CLI-related logging is also sent to 10.0.200.2, which is providing a remote syslog service. All other syslog parameters should be left at their default setting.

Book Solution

syslog {
user * {
any emergency;
}
host 10.0.200.2 {
interactive-commands any;
}
file messages {
any notice;
authorization info;
}
file r2-cli {
interactive-commands any;
archive files 4;
}
}

My concern is the file r2-cli.. wherein archive files 4 is given.. but the question says "permit four archived copies that will be no larger than 128K"

My Solution was

syslog {
user * {
any emergency;
}
host 10.0.200.2 {
interactive-commands any;
}
file messages {
any notice;
authorization info;
}
file r1-cli {
interactive-commands any;
archive size 128k files 4;
}

Any insight into this... Am I missing something..

    Hey hoogen,

    Have a look at page 20, it says the following.

    "The default archive settings will allow up to ten 128KB files that are not world-readable."

    So by default the syslog files are 128k in size. So with the case you could leave off configuring the 128k size and it would work.

    Thanks.. It does make sense from the book perspective... But I would have assumed 128k default for J-Series, 1Mb for M/T Series and 10Mb for T-Matrix.. That's was my confusion...

    In all truth I think it is 1mb now for the M series routers. I remember reading something in the ER book about that.
