Any UIM and sysloggtw probe versions


Syslogggtw will pickup on devices that are in spectrum but has no direct connection to spectrum.

The System Log Gateway (sysloggtw) probe acts as a gateway between the Syslog environment and CA Unified Infrastructure Management.

Most network devices, such as routers, switches, and bridges, report events using SNMP as well as using the well-known syslog format. This probe listens to port 514/udp when running in a receive mode.

All incoming Syslog messages are acted upon using the defined receive mode: Generate Alarm Generate SYSLOG-IN (for post-processing) messages Log to the file The spectrumgtw probe is the one typically used for UIM Spectrum integration.

The spectrumgtw (Spectrum Gateway) probe provides a bidirectional (CA UIM to CA Spectrum and CA Spectrum to CA UIM) integration between CA Unified Infrastructure Management and CA Spectrum enabling you to perform the following actions: Export and correlate CA Spectrum Inventory from a Global Collection to CA UIM inventory. Bi-directional synchronization of alarms Bi-directional Clear / Update of alarms View symptomatic CA Spectrum alarms in the context for the root-cause alarm in CA UIM Ticket ID synchronization between CA Spectrum and CA UIM Synchronize CA UIM inventory to CA Spectrum
