Does the log buffer of S series switches record all logs

The log buffer only records some logs. For S series switches (except the S1700), two factors determine the logs recorded by log buffer.
- By default, the log buffer only records logs at levels lower than the warning level (level 4); therefore, logs at levels 0 to 4 are recorded in the log buffer, whereas logs at levels 5 to 7 are not recorded. You can run the info-center source { module-name | default } channel { channel-number | channel-name } log { state { off | on } | level severity } * command to configure the levels of logs that can be recorded in the log buffer.
- The space of the log buffer is limited. If the number of logs in the log buffer reaches the maximum, new logs will replace the earliest logs in the log buffer. By default, the log buffer can hold a maximum of 512 logs. You can run the info-center logbuffer size size command to configure the maximum number as 1024.
