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'.

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