Hi, after upgrade to 386.1_2 my RT-AC68U is sending to remote syslog server all logs, and it does not matter, what settings I choose. All with Notice and above level are sent, event with bellow settings:

Any idea how to limit that? I can't use that now, as my NAS disks will be killed very shortly... And more important - disks are loud now:)

After changing them, I see that values in nvram are changed but it does not change behavior.

That's the way it's meant to behave. If it wasn't doing that before it would have been a bug. The log level options in the GUI only effect what is shown in the router's syslog. All log messages are sent to a remote syslog server, and it is that server that filters what it does or doesn't show in its logs.

I'm guessing the real issue is that the current firmware now produces lots of wlceventd messages whereas the older firmwares didn't. If you don't want to see them on your remote syslog server you need to setup a filter there.

Exactly those messages are problematic. OK, I have to check if it will work on server side and will limit writes to disks. Unfortunately log app on NAS is very limited.

Time for a new NAS system?
I have mine set up a new log file once a day, and archive the old fire, yes they’re big, but all that information is so valuable later on when you’re trying to trade some thing
