Looking to add a syslog server to MX100, any suggestions?I'm new to building a syslog server. Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I like Linux and for be I would be using Ubuntu and its built in syslog service. This is a complete step by step guide.
Splunk and ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana) even more so are great tools for monitoring and visualizing. The downside is the steeper learning curve, but it's deinitely worth it!
@BrandonS I see that PaperTrail has pricing based on storage capacity rather than number of endpoints. Are you able to provide an estimate of storage required per switch. I'm looking at deploying around 70 switches. Thanks.
@SNSGS I don't think I can estimate and I suppose it will depend on each environment and which messages you choose to send, but I do have dozens of devices sending what seems to be a lot of messages for only $10/mo. You can also filter out messages on the receiving end that will not count toward your quota.
