Adding Cisco Devices


The following configuration needs to be done in Cisco Devices (Switches and Routers), before adding them in EventLog Analyzer, for them to send syslogs to EventLog Analyzer and generate reports.

Configuring the Syslog on Cisco Switches

  1. Login to the switch.
  2. Go to the config mode.
  3. Do the below configuration to configure the switch (here, we have used Catalyst 2900) to send the logs to the EventLog Analyzer server:

    <Catalyst2900># config terminal
    <Catalyst2900>(config)# logging <EventLog Analyzer IP>


    For the latest catalyst switches

    Catalyst6500(config)# set logging <EventLog Analyzer IP>

    We can also configure other options like logging facility , trap notifications, etc. .. as

    Catalyst6500(config)# logging facility local7
    Catalyst6500(config)# logging trap notifications
note

The same commands are also applicable for Cisco Routers.

Please refer Cisco® documentation for detailed steps on configuring syslog in the respective routers or switches. Contact eventloganalyzer-support@manageengine.com if the syslog format of your cisco devices are different from the standard syslog format supported by EventLog Analyzer.
