Syslog exportation
You can export NxFilter log data somewhere over the Internet.


Syslog format
NxFilter supports Syslog exportation. The exported data is a character string separated by '|'. For example, if you have a Syslog data like below,

NXFILTER|2013-01-28 10:53:23|Y|www.bbc.co.uk|pwuser|192.168.0.101|admin|news|Blocked by admin|33|mygrp

It can be parsed into these values,

  • Prefix : NXFILTER
  • Date : 2013-01-28 10:53:23
  • Block yes/no : Y
  • Domain : www.bbc.co.uk
  • User : pwuser
  • Client IP : 192.168.0.101
  • Policy : admin
  • Category : news
  • Blocked reason : Blocked by admin
  • DNS query type : 33
  • Group : mygrp

With NxCloud, you get an operator name instead of 'Group'.

As of v4.2.6, NxCloud sends one more IP that is 'Local IP' from NxRelay at the end of the Syslog exportation string.
