Use a terminal emulator, such as PuTTY, connect to the WildFire appliance using either a secure shell connection (SSH) or a physical direct serial connection from a serial interface on your management computer to the Console port on the device.
  1. Launch the terminal emulation software and select the type of connection (Serial or SSH).
    • To establish an SSH connection, enter the WildFire hostname or IP address of the device you want to connect to and set the port to
      22
      .
    • To establish a Serial connection, connect a serial interface on management computer to the Console port on the device. Configure the Serial connection settings in the terminal emulation software as follows:
      • Data rate:
        9600
      • Data bits:
        8
      • Parity:
        none
      • Stop bits:
        1
      • Flow control:
        none
  2. When prompted to log in, enter your administrative credentials.
  3. On a WildFire appliance, enter the following command:
    admin@WF-500>show log system subtype direction equal backward
    This command displays all WildFire logged events categorized as a wildfire-appliance subtype from oldest to newest.
    • You can reverse the display of the logs to newest to oldest by adding the command argument
      direction equal backward
      .
    • The log messages returned by the WildFire appliance CLI can include numerous subtypes. You can filter the logs based on a common keyword. Use the following command argument to filter based on a specific string:
      match queue <
      keyword
      >
      The following WildFire appliance log shows the system initialization processes during startup.
