Security Logs service

This service monitors the SNMP traps and syslog messages that are transmitted to the monitoring probe. Appliances and applications that run on a computer, such as a server, can be configured to record events to the probe. 

This service cannot use Self Healing.

During the monitoring process, this service listens for SNMP traps and log messages that are transmitted to the probe. The service then interprets these events and displays the appropriate status based on the regular expressions that you define. The service also supports wide characters.

You must configure the monitored device to send syslog messages to the IP address of the Windows probe. The IP address of the device that is registered in SolarWinds N-central must be the same as the IP address that sends SNMP traps to the probes.
