SolarWinds UDT provides the following Syslog-related resources for inclusion within Web Console views.

Advanced Syslog Counts

Every syslog message has a designated severity. For more information about syslog severities, see Syslog severities. The Advanced Syslog Counts resource groups by severity all syslog messages received by the currently viewed node. For each severity, this resource provides the number of received syslog messages.

Advanced Syslog Parser

The Advanced Syslog Parser resource provides a comprehensive view of the syslog messages most recently received by the viewed node. The most recent messages of each severity are listed.

Advanced Syslog Summary

The Advanced Syslog Summary resource groups by message type all syslog messages received by the currently viewed node, where the message type is encoded in the syslog message packet. For each message type, this resource provides the severity, the host name or IP address of the message originator, and the total number of syslog messages received.

Last 25 Syslog Messages

The Last 25 Syslog Messages resource provides a list of the last 25 syslog messages that have been sent by monitored network devices to the viewed node. For each message, this resource presents the date and time the message was sent, the host name and IP address of the device sending the message, and the message text.

Clicking the host name, IP address, or message text opens the corresponding Object Details page, providing extensive diagnostic information about the monitored network object sending the message.

Clicking Edit opens the Edit Last 25 Syslog Messages page where you can set the maximum number of displayed messages, select the time period for viewing messages, and establish filters to limit the messages this resource displays. For more information, see Use node filters.

Syslog Summary

The Syslog Summary resource lists the number of syslog messages received by the viewed node from monitored network devices over a specified period of time.
