Syslog

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

You can set up log ingestion from Syslog to LogDNA 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 LogDNA support to provision the port. Consult your local Syslog man page for full configuration details.
