Configuring Syslog Server On Cisco Routers

General Networking

Syslog is a standard for forwarding log messages in an Internet Protocol (IP) computer network. It allows separation of the software that generates log messages from the system that stores the messages.

Syslog is a client/server protocol: a logging application transmits a maximum 1024-byte text message to the syslog receiver.  The receiver is commonly called syslogd, syslog daemon or syslog server. Syslog messages may be sent via the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) or the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). The data is sent in cleartext; although not part of the syslog protocol itself, an SSL wrapper may be used to provide for a layer of encryption through SSL/TLS. Syslog uses the port number 514.

Syslog is typically used for computer system management and security  auditing. While it has a number of shortcomings, syslog is supported by a wide variety of devices and receivers across multiple platforms. Because of this, syslog can be used to integrate log data from many different types of systems into a central repository.
