Description

When rules are modified, the only thing syslog sends is filterdns96878: merge_config: configuration reload. Instead, syslog should...

  • At minimum, send config related to X has changed (e.g. system12345: fwrules: rule changed).
  • Ideally, give a brief description of what changed (e.g. system12345: fwrules: rule {ID} added/modified/deleted).

As implemented it will log the same description which is added to the configuration already (which shows in the configuration history).

Any additional detail would have to come from separate feature requests to add more detail/specific information to the revision description when making other changes, and would not be related to this logging feature.
