Log Server

Log Servers store traffic logs that can be managed and compiled into reports. Log Servers also correlate events.

Multiple Log Servers can be deployed, which is useful in geographically distributed systems. Log Servers provide the following types of services:

  • Log data: Log Servers receive and store logs from other system components and make the data available for viewing and generating reports.
  • Statistics and status data: Log Servers receive, relay, and store information about the operation of other system components and keep a record available for generating reports.
  • Event correlation: Log Servers detect patterns of events in traffic inspected by multiple NGFW Engines.
