The UX Remote Log functionality uses a syslog server per the RFC 5424 standard. Unlike Local logging, configuring a syslog server for UX system logging allows you to manage logging resources separately from the system being monitored.
Depending on the size and configuration of your existing network infrastructure you may already have a syslog server. If your existing network infrastructure does not have a syslog server, there are many products available, including servers for Microsoft Windows (Kiwi Syslog Server, SL4NT) and Linux systems (syslogd).
- Network: It is highly recommended that the syslog server used to monitor UX log activity be located on the same subnet as the UX system. If UX and syslog server are not on the same network, increased log level detail and large amount of calls may result in high bandwidth utilization.
- Total Destinations: While you can configure up to 6 remote log server destinations on the UX, it is not advisable to have this many destinations configured during high call churn.
