in contrast to the GS-23xx series switches the bootlog of GS-3xxx switches only shows errors. Therefore the eventlog must be called additionally in order to gain information regarding restarts, firmware updates and configuration backups.
This article describes how to read out the bootlog and the eventlog on GS-3xxx switches.
- SSH client (e.g. PuTTY)
1) Connect to the switch via SSH and login with admin rights.
2) Enter the command show bootlog. In this example the bootlog is empty as no error has occured yet.
3) Enter the command show eventlog.
