  • 1.  Any System Events Available for SSH Issues?

    Posted 02-03-2016 12:36

    Hi,

     

    When I SSH to a device I get this message:

     

    ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

     

    Is there any Event that's triggered when this error occurs?

     

    Thanks.

    Hi rais@Darden,

     

     

    You should probably get an "SSHD_LOGIN_FAILED" message, though its not specific to this error .

    Is there any event that can be triggered at will e.g. at regular intervals of e.g 48 hours?

     

    Thanks

    You can use "generate_event" to create your own regularly-scheduled named event.  Then, create a policy that "does something" whenevery your event fires.  Like so:

     

    event-options {
        generate-event {
            MY_DAILY_EVENT time-interval 86400;
        }
        policy MY_POLICY {
            events MY_DAILY_EVENT;
            then {
                event-script my-nutty-event-script.slax  {
                    arguments {
                        arg1 hello;
                        arg2 world;
                    }
                }
            }
        }
        event-script {
           file my-nutty-event-script.slax;
        }
    }
    

    You don't *have* to use an event script in the "then" clause.  You can use "execute-commands", "change-configuratino" etc as needed.    

     

    Is that what you're asking ?

    Yes, that's what I was asking.

    Thanks.

    Excellent!  Glad to help.

     

    FWIW, you can also check out  an article I wrote about a year or so ago that mentions that technique. ("Approach 1")
