Configuring syslog output

Wazuh may be configured to send alerts to syslog as follows:

Configuration

Syslog output is configured in ossec.conf. All the available options are detailed in Syslog output

<ossec_config>
  <syslog_output>
    <level>9</level>
    <server>192.168.1.241</server>
  </syslog_output>

  <syslog_output>
    <server>192.168.1.240</server>
  </syslog_output>
</ossec_config>

The above configuration will send alerts to 192.168.1.240 and, if the alert level is higher than 9, will also send the alert to 192.168.1.241.

After the configuration of the ossec.conf file, the client-syslog must be enabled followed by a restart of Wazuh using the following command:

# /var/ossec/bin/ossec-control enable client-syslog
  1. For Systemd:
# systemctl restart wazuh-manager
  1. For SysV Init:
# service wazuh-manager restart
