    CPPM 6.11.7 - currently sending syslog data to a splunk setup .. problem is they dont want all of it ( trimmed down to auth and acounting)  and alo want  some details regarding whats in the syslog data. Just to save me time writing something, is there a cppm doc  that covers all this ?

    I'm not sure if I ever saw something like that, however if you configure RFC 5424 or CEF, there are field names in the logs that pretty much describe what is in the log file.

    Also, you configure yourself what fields are in the syslog message, so there is not really a standard log. Your SIEM vendor probably has guidance what data needs to be in the log messages to fully support your use-case.

    Sort of what I expected. Just looking to Dave myself some time documenting stuff. We’re sending data to a splunk team who want to know what’s they’re looking at in the syslog data … yes we’re using CEF.

    Ok I'll put something together
