The Syslog Server listens for incoming syslog messages on User Datagram Protocol (UDP) port 514, decodes the messages for logging purposes, and stores the messages in a local database. If you have an active maintenance agreement and want to report to an SQL database instead of Access, log in to the SolarWinds website and go to Additional Components.

Though originally used specifically on UNIX systems for application, network, and operating system logging, numerous network devices can also generate Syslog messages. For details on enabling Syslog message on a particular device, refer to the vendor documentation.

When a Syslog message is received, the Syslog Server adds the message to the Syslog database and displays the message.
