This feature is available only in the licensed version.

Use the Input source filter to trigger an action only if the input source of the message matches one of the selected input sources (for example, only TCP messages).

If there is no Input source filter in the rule, all input sources are included.

  1. From the Kiwi Syslog Service Manager, choose File > Setup.
  2. Add a new rule, or locate an existing rule.
  3. Right-click the Filters node below the rule, and choose Add Filter.
  4. Replace the default name with a descriptive name. (The name does not have to be unique.)
  5. In the Field menu, select Input source.

  6. Select one or more input sources.

  7. (Optional) Test the filter.
  8. Click Apply to save the filter.

    Actions in the associated rule are triggered only by messages from the selected input source.
