Sending SMC logs to a remote server in Syslog format

SMC supports the Syslog protocol in order to collect all logs from the system and from SMC and send them to a remote Syslog server, with or without encryption.

To use the Syslog service on SMC:

  1. Log in to the SMC server via the console port or in SSH using the “root” account.
  2. Enter the command smc-syslog-ng. The service's current configuration will appear.
