Each device in your network logs a lot of complex information, including important data events and statuses. In order to find the cause of problems and plan for the future of your system, it is crucial to gather this data and review the details all in one place. This can be quite challenging without a comprehensive tool, especially if you are managing a larger network.
The Syslog Solution
Syslog presents a solution: a standardized protocol that collects messages from all your devices and sends them to a single server.
There are three simple, standardized components to Syslog:
Content: The information contained in an event message
Application: A means of generating this message, as well as interpreting and routing it
Transport: Transportation of this message to a server
Success Lies in Your Server
To successfully utilize the information gathered by the Syslog protocol, you’ll need a server that will not only store it, but provide alerts and allow you to search for exactly what you want to know.
