Action - Send Syslog message
|Top Previous Next|
This feature is only available in the licensed version.
This will send a Syslog message to the hosts specified, whenever a message is received and passes the filters set above.
Details of the received message and other Syslog statistics can be included in the outgoing Syslog message.
This can be used to relay selected Syslog messages on to another host with extra information, or with your own text added to the message.
Specify a destination IP address or host name in the Hostname or IP address field.
Press the "?" button next to the Hostname or IP address field to see the host name syntax.
Multiple host names can receive the forwarded message.
Each host name or IP address must be separated by a comma.
I.e. Myhost.com, SecondHost.net, 22.214.171.124
Specify the new facility and level you wish to forward the message to, by selecting from the New facility and New level lists. (By default the message will be sent out on the same facility and level it came in on, but you can change this if you want to.)
Press the Test button to send a test Syslog message to the addresses specified.
Insert message content or counter
To pass program variables, counters, script fields and statistics into the new syslog message, click on the Insert message content or counter link and choose an option from the popup menu. More details on the values can be found here.
This option allows you to choose a variable from a popup menu. The variable is then replaced with the current value before the message is sent. For example %MsgText is replaced with the text of the current syslog message. Just position your cursor in the syslog message text line and click the hyperlink. A popup menu will be displayed so you can choose the variable you want.
Example message text field: Syslog Alert from %MsgHost
Or: Message from Host %MsgHost at %MsgTime on %MsgDate Message: %MsgText
