Solarwinds & Cisco Live! Barcelona
Join us from the 29th of January to the 2nd of February at Cisco Live 2018 in Barcelona, where we will continue to show how monitoring the network with SolarWinds will keep you ahead of the game. At our booth (WEP 1A), we will demonstrate how SolarWinds network solutions can help. As a bonus, we are also hosting a pre-event webinar - Blame the Network, Hybrid IT Edition with our SolarWinds Head Geek™, Patrick Hubbard on January 24th - GMT (UTC+0): 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. There's still time to RSVP.

This deployment example uses two syslog servers based in two locations to collect log data from your network devices in a wide area network (WAN). The syslog server is installed in two Windows-based systems hosting the LEM agent, which captures the syslog data from the network devices. You can use this deployment to collect syslog data from two remote locations.


This architecture detaches and distributes the syslog servers in separate locations, rather than using the Syslog server in the LEM Manager. Both locations include a local syslog server. The LEM connectors normalize the original log messages into LEM events. You can implement this scenario when your change management processes prevent you from adding new logging hosts on your network devices.

If you deploy a detached Syslog server (such as a Kiwi syslog server), install a LEM Agent on both syslog servers, and then enable the appropriate connectors on the LEM Agent.

Automatic log scanning does not apply to the LEM Agent. However, new nodes can be discovered by the enabled connectors.

If your log sources are located behind firewalls, see SolarWinds LEM port and firewall information to open the necessary ports or the SolarWinds Port Requirements for SolarWinds Products Guide for a list of all ports required to communicate with LEM.
