Does Periodic Polling also collect or or just checks for changes and then a Periodic Collection must be run to collect the changed configs?
i ask this because i see someone has configed both to run daily on our system.
if someone would succeed in blocking SNMP, and thus preventing change detection, the weekly collection will still pick up any changes.
The polling is done on pure SNMP, where the collection uses all protocols that are allowed in RME,(TELNET, SSH, RCP, SCP, TFTP, etc)
The SYSLOG automated actions is a part of RME that listens for SYSLOG messages from the devices. You devices must be configured to send SYSLOG to the server of course. Certain messages indicate a (potential) change and trigger a collection job.
