RFC3164 (syslog protocol) data parser
4.0.90 build 430. April 30, 2021.
The Syslog protocol provides a transport to allow a machine to send event notification messages across IP networks to event message collectors - so known as Syslog servers.
Since each process, application, and operating system was written somewhat independently, there is little uniformity to the content of Syslog messages.
For this reason, no assumption is made upon the formatting or contents of messages. The protocol is simply designed to transport these event messages. In all cases, there is one device that originates the message.
The Syslog process on that machine may send the message to a collector. No acknowledgments of the receipt are made.
This module allows you to parse message parts to parser variables, and you can export these variables to a database, Excel, file, etc.
