Syslog Settings

The following table describes the available options for configuring syslog notifications for Entitlement, legacy Event Source Management (ESM), Warehouse Connector monitoring, and Archiver monitoring.

Feature Description
Enable Enables the syslog settings configured here.
Server Name Specifies the host where the target syslog process is running.
Server port Specifies the port where the target syslog process is listening.
Facility Specifies the designated syslog facility to use for all outgoing messages. Possible values are KERN, USER, MAIL, DAEMON, AUTH, SYSLOG, LPR, NEWS, UUCP, CRON, AUTHPRIV, FTP, LOCAL1 through LOCAL7.

Optionally use IDENT protocol When checked, NetWitness Platform prepends the identity string to outgoing syslog alerts.
Identity string This is an identity string to be prepended to each syslog alert. If the string is blank, no identity string is prepended to the outgoing syslog alerts. You can use this to identify the source of the alert. Users conventionally set it to the name of the program that sends the syslog message.
Apply Applies the syslog configuration settings.
