The Open LDAP DSM for JSA accepts multiline UDP syslog events from Open LDAP installations that are configured to log stats events by using logging level 256.

Open LDAP events are forwarded to JSA using port 514, but must be redirected to the port configured in the UDP Multiline protocol. This redirect that uses iptables is required because JSA does not support multiline UDP syslog on the standard listen port.


UDP multiline syslog events can be assigned to any port other than port 514. The default port that is assigned to the UDP Multiline protocol is UDP port 517. If port 517 is used in your network, see the JSA Common Ports Technical Note for a list of ports that are used by JSA.


Forward the UDP Multiline syslog events directly to the chosen port (default 517) from your Open LDAP device. If you can't send events to this port directly, you can use the backup method of configuring IPtables for UDP Multiline Syslog events.
