Adding a Syslog Application

When should Syslog Application be used?

If syslogs are simultaneously forwarded from a device that has already been configured as a Windows Device, Log360 Cloud server will ignore the syslogs in order to maintain a single base log source. If you want to configure Log360 Cloud server to receive syslogs too from a Windows device, follow the procedure given below:

  • Log into your Log360 Cloud dashboard.
  • Navigate to Settings -> Configuration Settings -> Log source configuration -> Applications tab.
  • From the right pane, click on the General Applications tab to view the list of applications being monitored.
  • To add a new application, click on Add General Applications.
  • Adding SQL server
  • Select Syslog Application from the Application Type drop down box.
  • Expand the list by clicking the "+" icon to add a new device.
  • Choose from the drop-down menu to add Configured devices, Workgroup devices, domain devices, etc.
  • Adding SQL server
  • To add new devices manually, click on Configure Manually and enter Log Source.
  • Adding SQL server
  • Click on Select and Add to add the log source.
  • Use the Select Agent dropdown to select the device that is the agent to which the logs will be forwarded.
  • The applications will now be added for monitoring.
