Syslog log source parameters for Cisco Nexus

If QRadar® does not automatically detect the log source, add a Cisco Nexus log source on the QRadar Console by using the syslog protocol.

When using the syslog protocol, there are specific parameters that you must use.

The following table describes the parameters that require specific values to collect syslog events from Cisco Nexus devices :
Table 1. Syslog log source parameters for the Cisco Nexus DSM
Parameter Value
Log Source type Cisco Nexus
Protocol Configuration Syslog
Log Source Identifier Type the IP address or host name for the log source.

The identifier helps you determine which events came from your Cisco Nexus device.
