Configuring Syslog for Damballa Failsafe


To collect events, you must configure your Damballa Failsafe device to forward syslog events to JSA.

  1. Log in to your Damballa Failsafe Management Console.
  2. From the navigation menu, select Setup >Integration Settings.
  3. Click the JSA tab.
  4. Select Enable Publishing to JSA.
  5. Configure the following options:
    • Hostname— Type the IP address or Fully Qualified Name (FQN) of your JSA console.

    • Destination Port— Type 514. By default, JSA uses port 514 as the port for receiving syslog events.

    • Source Port— This input is not a requirement. Type the Source Port your Damballa Failsafe device uses for sending syslog events.

  6. Click Save.

    The configuration is complete. The log source is added to JSA as Damballa Failsafe events are automatically discovered. Events that are forwarded by Damballa Failsafe are displayed on the Log Activity tab of JSA.
