Syslog is collecting information, but I have some general questions about the config:
The Syslog Collector Status is showing up and the name of the CiscoWorks Server itself.
Accoring to the Help screen this is where you configure the common syslog collector.
This has to be configured even though the CiscoWorks server is doing the collection to itself?
And the idea is that CiscoWorks could be pointed to a third party collector to create reports from off box syslog files?
Currently the purge is set up for once a month and the backup file size is 200M, but I am not sure this is the best configuration.
My understanding is that once the file is backed up, it is no longer viewed and no reports pulled in CiscoWorks, correct?
So with my current config, I am able to view/report a month back as long as the month of data is not bigger than 200M, is this correct?
Also, on the purge, does it delete files?
