|It is critical for the appropriate personnel to be aware if a system is at risk of failing to process audit logs as required. Without this notification, the security personnel may be unaware of an impending failure of the audit capability and system operation may be adversely affected. Audit processing failures include software/hardware errors, failures in the audit capturing mechanisms, and audit storage capacity being reached or exceeded.|

| The Cisco router is not compliant with this requirement. However, the risk associated with this requirement can be fully mitigated if the router is configured to send logs to a syslog server that can send alerts to the appropriate personnel. |
Verify that the router is configured to send logs to a syslog server. The configuration should look similar to the example below:
logging trap notifications
Note: Default for sending log messages to the syslog server is informational (level 6); hence, the command logging trap informational will not be seen in the configuration. Level of log messages sent to the syslog server can be verified using the show logging command.
If the router is not configured to send log messages to a syslog server, this is a finding.

| Configure the router to send log messages to the syslog server as shown in the example below. |
