SYSLOG server


If all you're after are to get the log files have you tried setting up a syslog server? Many free ones out there and you just set up as a service on a server. The IOS commands are short and sweet:

logging trap notifications

Then all the logs go to the syslog server and you don't have to worry about missing any because the log file on the device wrapped on you. Using CatOS it is:

set logging server enable
set logging server

And under PIX it is:

logging on
logging trap warnings
logging facility 23
logging host inside

Using a syslog server you also don't have to worry about a script failing to run to collect your logs. If you pass through any firewalls you'll have to open up port 514 UDP though.
