Receive and analyze Syslog messages with PRTG

i Syslog stands for System Logging Protocol and is a standard protocol used to send system log or event messages to a specific server, called a syslog server. It is primarily used to collect various device logs from several different machines in a central location for monitoring and review. The protocol is enabled on most network equipment such as routers, switches, firewalls, and even some printers and scanners. In addition, syslog is available on Unix and Linux based systems and many web servers including Apache.

Keeping an eye on system messages and log files just got a whole lot easier:
Network devices continuously send system messages via Syslog, messages which must be analyzed by administrators.
The right monitoring tool is necessary to maintain an overview of this process.
Only then can you promptly spot loopholes and fix errors.


PRTG has developed a Syslog sensor that receives Syslog messages from network devices and analyzes their contents.
As an administrator, you are free to choose the types of events for which you receive alerts.
PRTG thereby ensures you do not overlook any important information.

With PRTG, everyone can work with peace of mind.

 

How does Syslog analyzer PRTG work?


PRTG functions as a central Syslog server that gathers and processes the log information of your network devices and notifies you when a particular event occurs. Its customizable warning system makes it possible to send SNMP traps and Syslog messages to inform administrators of alarms.

iWhat is a sensor?

In PRTG, “Sensors” are the basic monitoring elements. One sensor usually monitors one measured value in your network, e.g. the traffic of a switch port, the CPU load of a server, the free space of a disk drive. On average you need about 5-10 sensors per device or one sensor per switch port.
