The goal of the Syslog Collector architecture designed by LUTEUS is to provide a scalable solution for handling huge quantities of Syslog messages and to help the administrator to classify, analyze and process them. With the syslog collector agent you can collect syslog messages, filter them in real time, browse and search log files. With the syslog manager provided in LoriotPro you can apply filters rules on syslog agents from a single location.
The Syslog system provides the transport and storage mechanisms for event notification messages, in the form of Logs. Syslog is a de-facto standard defined by RFC3164 for logging system events. It was commonly and initially used by Unix systems (The unix syslog daemon syslogd), later on by network devices (router syslog, switch syslog, firewall syslog). It will be very efficient in a Cisco device architecture for the collection of PIX syslog and Cisco syslog generated by routers and switches)
