Syslog

Mezmo provides an integration to stream logs via Syslog using TCP and UDP

📘

LogDNA is now Mezmo

LogDNA has recently become Mezmo. As you access technical resources like our API, Code Libraries, and GitHub repositories, you will continue to see references to LogDNA for a short time as we update our new name across all our resource channels.

You can set up log ingestion from Syslog to MEzmo using both TCP and UDP. TCP and TCP+TLS are all supported on the same provisioned port. If you are using a custom port to send logs via UDP, please contact Mezmo support to provision the port. Consult your local Syslog man page for full configuration details.
