About the Log Sources Page

To access this page, select Configure > Insights > Log Sources.

Security products such as Juniper Secure Analytics (JSA) can act as a log source. You can create multiple log parsers for different log sources. The log source name is the hostname portion of the syslog message that Security Director Insights uses to identify the log source, and how Security Director Insights will parse its logged events.

Starting in Security Director Insights Release 21.3, you can enable Security Director log collector to receive logs from Junos only. Use the set log-collector junoslog-only on CLI command in the application mode, as shown in Figure 1.
