This article discusses what happens to logs if the LEM server is down.


All LEM versions


If the LEM is down, the log data that comes to the LEM may or may not be queued depending on how the LEM receives those logs.


Logs received from agent nods will be queued on the agent nodes until the LEM reconnects at which time the logs will be sent to the LEM. 


Logs that are gathered by connectors that log in to a device may gather logs that it has not yet received, depending on the retrieval method.


Logs that are sent by syslog will be dropped as the syslog server that is part of the LEM will not be running.
