What is Syslog?
Syslog is a standard for sending and receiving notification messages–in a particular format–from various network devices. The messages include time stamps, event messages, severity, host IP addresses, diagnostics and more. In terms of its built-in severity level, it can communicate a range between level 0, an Emergency, level 5, a Warning, System Unstable, critical and level 6 and 7 which are Informational and Debugging.
Here is a simple Syslog example:
How our ETL-Software can process Syslog files?
Syslog is just Utf8 text file with LF as an end of line delimiter. Both Advanced ETL Processor and Visual Importer ETL can read Syslog files using dedicated reader. We recommend using Advanced ETL Processor because it gives more flexibility.
