# Syslog Collector
This package enables Syslog collection.
The Syslog Collector configures a ServicePilot Windows or Linux Agent to listen on a port for SNMP traps and notifications. These are then sent on to the ServicePilot Manager.
Network Flows - It is is necessary to ensure network connectivity between ServicePilot and the monitored device. In case of a network infrastructure using a firewall, all the ports below must be opened:
- ServicePilot Manager Web server access (by default TCP/80 when using HTTP or TCP/443 when using HTTPS although this port is configurable): Between ServicePilot Agent and ServicePilot Manager
- UDP/514 (Syslog): Between device sending Syslogs and ServicePilot Agent
- ServicePilot Manager minimum version: 8.5
- ServicePilot Agent minimum version: 8.5 installed and configured
Before adding a resource to monitor, make certain that all pre-requisites are in place and if a ServicePilot Agent is required, that it is communicating correctly with the ServicePilot Manager.
