How to add a syslog source

You don't need to add syslog sources manually. Syslog Watcher analyzes incoming syslog packets and automatically registers new syslog sources.

To create a new syslog source in Syslog Watcher 5.1 or later:
  1. Make sure Syslog Watcher server is running (and the installed license is not expired)
  2. Configure the syslog source to send its logs to Syslog Watcher.
