SolarWinds NCM uses a built-in syslog server and SNMP trap receiver to notify you when it detects configuration changes to your monitored devices. A syslog rule locates syslog messages and compares the current config status with the previously backed-up config version. SolarWinds NCM notifies you of any differences between the configs. Using the information provided, you can quickly determine if a configuration change is the cause of a network problem.

Set the syslog rule

  1. Log in to the Orion Server as an administrator.
  2. In the SolarWinds program folder, start the Syslog Viewer.
  3. Click View > Alerts/Filter Rules.

  4. Select NCM Rule: Cisco IOS Realtime Change Notifications, and click OK.

    SolarWinds NCM is now configured to accept syslog messages generated by the Cisco router.
