The SecureAuth Backup Tool can be configured to communicate with a RFC 3164compliant Syslog facility server
Configuring Syslog Operation
You can configure the Syslog options for the backup tool by editing the preference file located at D:\MFCApp_Bin\Extras\SABackupTool\etc\sabackupconfig.ini. The logging functionality options are located in the [Syslog] section.
When set to true logging is sent to the defined syslog server. If set to false no entries are sent to the defined syslog server
The port number of the syslog server. The IANAassigned port for syslog is UDP/514.
A facility level is used to specify which type of program is logging the message.
The TAG is the name of the program or process which generates the message (default: SABackup). The tag should not exceed 32 characters.
information warning error
The loglevel is used to specify a logging level for the syslog functionality. When you specify a loglevel, all events greater than and equal to the specified severity level are sent to the syslog server. For example, if you specify loglevel=warning, both warning and error messages are sent to the syslog server. In this example, information is excluded from the severity level because it is less than the warning level.
