Adding Logging Nodes

Use this page to configure logging nodes. You must deploy the Log Collector and then add it to the Junos Space Network Management Platform fabric to view the log data in the dashboard, events and logs, reports, and alerts.

You can deploy log collectors in both VM and JA2500 appliance. For easy scaling, begin with a single log receiver node and log storage node and incrementally add log storage nodes as your needs expand. You can add a maximum of 1 log receiver node and 3 log storage nodes.
