Viewing Syslog Source Status

To view the status of the collected system message log data, in the navigation pane, select Status and then select the Syslog Sources tab.

  • Click Refresh to update the information in the status fields. The syslog sources status displays a timestamp from the last refresh at the top of the screen.
