    Table 1: Syslog Parameters



    Log Source Identifier

    Type the IP address or host name for the log source as an identifier for events from SonicWALL appliances.

    Each log source that you create for your SonicWALL SonicOS appliance ideally includes a unique identifier, such as an IP address or host name.

  10. Click Save.
  11. On the Admin tab, click Deploy Changes.

    The log source is added to JSA. Events that are forwarded to JSA by SonicWALL SonicOS appliances are displayed on the Log Activity tab. For more information, see the Juniper Secure Analytics Users Guide.
