Citrix NetScaler sample message when you use the Syslog protocol

The following sample event message shows a successful SSL handshake.

Tip: Citrix NetScaler does not send events with RFC3164 or RFC5424 headers, so the log source is not discovered by using a hostname or IP address in the header. Instead, log sources are automatically discovered by using the log source identifier of the event's packet IP. Use the Syslog Redirect protocol to use the value in the header instead of the value in the packet IP. For more information, see QRadar: Syslog Redirect Protocol FAQ (
