    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.

    Before You Begin

    • Read the Logging and Reporting Overview topic.
    • Configure Syslog and Security logging configuration from Devices > Security Devices > Modify Configuration. See Modifying the Configuration of Security Devices.
    • The eps rate of up to 1000, requires a single Log Collector Node. You must deploy and configure a Log Collector VM in All-in-One node.
    • The eps rate of up to 10,000, requires a log storage node and a log receiver node.
    • Review the Logging Management main page for an understanding of your current data set. See Logging Nodes Main Page Fields for field descriptions.
    • Log collector is supported both on a VM and JA2500 appliance that can be deployed on a VMware ESX server.
