Syslog is an event-monitoring scheme that is especially popular in Unix environments. Sites that use Syslog typically have a log host node, which acts as a sink for several devices on the network. You must have a Syslog daemon operating in your network to use Syslog monitoring. The Syslog format is: Date Time Hostname Event.
To enable Syslog Monitoring from the Management Console (https://<ip.address.of.proxysg:8082>):
- Select the Maintenance tab > Event Logging > Syslog tab
- Click on the New button. Enter the domain name or IP address of your log host server in the Loghost field and click on the OK button.
- Check the Enable Syslog check box and click Apply
To enable Syslog Monitoring from the CLI, use the following commands:
SGOS#(config event-log)syslog loghost loghost
SGOS#(config event-log)syslog enable
Note: The Syslogs will now be written to the loghost server you specified.
