Syslog log source parameters for Cisco IOS

If QRadar® does not automatically detect the log source, add a Cisco IOS 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 a Cisco IOS device:
