Syslog Integration

  • Last updated on

Syslog Integration supports syslog version 3.

Syslog Integration enables you to export your event data to a syslog server or a security information and events management (SIEM) system. With Syslog Integration, you can store your information and use it for tracking, analysis, and troubleshooting.

Setting Up Syslog Integration

To configure Syslog Integration:

  1. Click the Settings icon gearIcon.png to access the administrative functions. 
  2. Select the Syslog Options tab.
  3. Select the Active checkbox.
  4. Enter the IP Address/Hostname and Port for your  syslog server/SIEM system. The default port is 6514.
    Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response public IP addresses are: 3.232.50.116 and 52.202.236.132                     
  5. Click Save.
  6. Click Test to ensure that Barracuda Forensics & Incident Response can connect with your  syslog server/SIEM system.
    • If the test is successful your message log data begins transferring to your syslog server/SIEM system.
    • If the test is not successful, check the IP Address/Hostname and Port information and reenter it if needed. Then perform the test again.

To deactivate the syslog server, clear the Active checkbox. 

Notes:

  • You can only connect one syslog server/SIEM system at a time. You can delete an existing entry and replace it, but you cannot have multiple entries.

  • This feature is available only for Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) with Transport Layer Security (TLS).

  • If your syslog server/SIEM system stops responding, data will not spool until the communication is re-established.

  • After you enable or disable syslog integration, it can take up to 10 minutes for message transmission to either start or stop.
