Network Devices

How do I ship logs from network devices?

As previously covered, Logz.io relies on a unique token preceding your log messages. This routes logs to your account to ensure security and privacy.

Typically, the syslog modules built into networking and security appliances don’t provide the ability to prepend a token to log messages, as those devices have very minimal configuration options (mostly host and port as output only).

We recommend setting up an intermediary service, such as Rsyslog or fluentd, that can prepend your token to the relevant logs before securely shipping them to Logz.io.
