ASA Syslog, SNMP, Netflow

Which interface does Syslog, SNMP and Netflow data exit an ASA operating in multiple mode by default? If it's the management interface in the admin context then does that mean that every other context on the firewall send it's Syslog, SNMP and Netflow data through the management interface located on the admin context? I need to know for the purpose of installing a IDS system on my network. It is my understanding that every separate context must communicate with the IDS server. Thanks in advance!

there is no default interface for this.  When you set them up you specify which interface these messages are to be sent out of.

If it's the management interface in the admin context then does that mean that every other context on the firewall send it's Syslog, SNMP and Netflow data through the management interface located on the admin context?

Again, the egress interface is defined when you configure Syslog, SNMP etc.  As far as I know this needs to be done for each context.
