This topic provides instructions on how to configure a Syslog notification server. When enabled, Syslog provides auditing through the use of the RFC 5424 Syslog protocol. Syslog has proven to be an effective format to consolidate logs, as there are many open source and proprietary tools for reporting and analysis.
Make sure that you have the Syslog settings that you would like to use as notification server.
