  • Syslog Server Configuration

Course Content


For decades, the syslog protocol has been used to convey messages from network devices to a logging server, commonly referred to as a syslog server. The syslog protocol is supported by most major operating systems, including macOS, Linux, and Unix, due to its longevity and ubiquity.

Syslog has many advantages that make it a popular choice for big enterprise networks. It offers built in support for encryption, which means that communications between servers and other devices are secure. This is especially important when sending sensitive data over a public network or from one company's internal network to another.

Syslog is a protocol for sending and receiving notification messages from various network devices in a specific manner. The messages are transmitted to event message collectors or syslog servers across IP networks. Syslog communicates using the User Datagram Protocol (UDP), port 514.

The purpose of syslog is to store and retrieve messages and their associated data. Syslog is used for reporting purposes, for capturing system events and other types of messages.
