- gathering logging information
- authenticating and encrypting data sent over the network
- retaining captured messages on the router when a router is rebooted
- specifying where captured information is stored
- distinguishing between information to be captured and information to be ignored
- setting the size of the logging buffer
Explanation: Syslog operations include gathering information, selecting which type of information to capture, and directing the captured information to a storage location. The logging service stores messages in a logging buffer that is time-limited, and cannot retain the information when a router is rebooted. Syslog does not authenticate or encrypt messages.
