    Customer defined varchar(xxx) for the Message Type column on the syslog table


      Promoting my post to a feature request.

      Re: Syslog truncating information


      Within the syslog settings you should allow the customer to define the varchar(xxx) length for message type. Current, this coulmn (NetPerfMon DB - syslog Table - message type coumn) only support 100 characters. This number is not enough for our FTP logs that are imported into ORION.

      Talking with technical support they did not recommend that this value change, as it could cause issues down the road.

      To stay compliant and for our pricing program to work, we had to change this setting. This should be allowed as a customer settings and should not be overwritten in any DB updates or upgrades.
