Extreme NAC


The Extreme NAC DSM for JSA accepts events by using syslog. JSA records all relevant events.

For details on configuring your Extreme NAC appliances for syslog, consult your vendor documentation. After the Extreme NAC appliance is forwarding syslog events to JSA, the configuration is complete. The log source is added to JSA as Extreme NAC events are automatically discovered. Events that are forwarded by Extreme NAC appliances are displayed on the Log Activity tab of JSA.
