Syslog action

When a device does not respond to polling, you can send a Syslog message to a host that is running a Syslog server.

Configure the following:

Note: If you attempt to run another application on the same system that also listens on the same Syslog port as WhatsUp Gold, the error message Unable to Open Socket displays.

Note: The WhatsUp Gold Syslog listener runs on Port 514 by default. This port can be configured in the WhatsUp Gold console at Configure > Program Options > Passive Monitor Listeners > Syslog.

Tip: To check the status of an action, or to cancel an action, in the WhatsUp Gold console go to Tools > Running Actions.
