ESET Endpoint Security interface to syslog

Recommended Posts

On Linux: I was wondering whether ESET Endpoint Security logs event messages to syslog, and if it does not do so by default, whether it is possible to configure it to use syslog?

Hello @QuestionPerson,

yes, it is described at https://help.eset.com/eeau/8/en-US/idh_config_logs.html?zoom_highlightsub=syslog

Syslog facility is a syslog logging parameter used to group similar log messages. For example, logs from daemons (which collect logs via syslog facility daemon) can go to /var/log/daemon.log if configured. With the recent switch to systemd and its journal, syslog facility is less important but still can be used for filtering logs.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for the reply, I'm very happy to hear that this works!

Could I trouble you for some details? I found the following in the exporter ESET .xml configuration:

    <ITEM NAME="Log">
     <NODE NAME="SyslogFacility" TYPE="number" VALUE="5" />
     <NODE NAME="MinimumLogVerbosity" TYPE="number" VALUE="8" />

How would I set/change these values to - for example - see the results of the latest on-demand scan?

Also, how/where would I be able to see the syslog messages? My machine is running rsyslog and it's probably very easy to do, but I never used it before o_O

And, finally: Does the syslog logging depend on having an activated license? (I'm waiting for mine as we speak and want to make sure I'm not looking for something that won't work until ESET is activated.)
