Hello,

To provide Syslog for Syslog servers, I open Syslog in the command center.

Is it possible to verify Syslog traffic?

Good afternoon.  You will be able to verify this traffic after FR30.  Changes being made will provide the ability to monitor the connection and traffic.

We are on FR28 at this time, I have enabled syslog server and setup all the details, the CS\ Webserve are able to cvping to the syslog server on the port assigned, I understand that in FR30 we will be able to verify traffic, what is the currently available way to verify, is there a log file or any other logging that can confirm syslogs are being sent?

AFAIK, there’s nothing in the logs confirming that we forwarded anything to syslog.  At least not with the default debug levels configured.  In the past I have confirmed my syslog forwarding by watching for the entries from the CommServe showing up on the syslog server.

Thanks,
Scott
