Syslog Message Reference Guide

This document is intended to provide a reference for the syslog messages that are generated by the /login and /appliance interfaces of the Bomgar Appliance, as well as any clients that generate syslog messages such as the access console. It is assumed that the reader is familiar with the syslog concept and functionality. This document lists the different events that are logged by the syslog service that resides on the appliance and describes what the events mean as well as what triggers them.


To enable syslog messages from the Bomgar Appliance, go to /appliance > Security > Appliance Administration and scroll down to the Syslog section.

You can configure your appliance to send log messages to up to ten syslog servers, separating entries by commas. Select the data format for the event notification messages. Choose from the standards specification RFC 5424, one of the legacy BSD formats, or Syslog over TLS. Bomgar Appliance logs are sent using the local0 facility.

Note: Syslog over TLS always uses TCP port 6514
