Consistent in delivering data, stable, and scalable
Syslog is mainly used for network logs, and it can be configured to support a number of ports for an IP. From a scalability perspective, a front-end load balancer or other third-party elements can be used to route traffic to syslog. However, syslog will always look for the standard log format. If the format is not up to the standard syslog level, the load balancer will add its own IP to the log and forward it to syslog. To ensure integrity, the log should remain the same, without any changes to the server A IP. If there is a change in the login server A, the load balancer will add its own IP or hostname to the log and forward it to syslog. To address this issue, further investigation is needed to enable the product to overcome this scenario. We have 12 technicians supporting the platform.
