Configuring Syslog on Your Apple Mac OS X


You can configure syslog on systems that run Mac OS X operating systems.

  1. Using SSH, log in to your Mac OS X device as a root user.
  2. Open the /etc/syslog.conf file.
  3. Add the following line to the top of the file. Make sure that all other lines remain intact:

    *.* @JSA_IP_address

  4. Save and exit the file.
  5. Send a hang-up signal to the syslog daemon to make sure that all changes are enforced:

    sudo killall - HUP syslogd

    The syslog configuration is complete. Events that are forwarded to JSA by your Apple Mac OS X are displayed on the Log Activity tab.

    For more information about Mac OS X configurations, see your Mac OS X vendor documentation.
