Dear Osama,

You mentioned that you add the device ans SNMP device, is there any chance that you used the SNMP Trap Receiver Sensor instead of the Syslog Receiver Sensor?

I also recommend to check the settings of the syslog sensor and to remove every filter rule until any message is displayed.

If there are still no messages shown, install a packet capture tool like WireShark on the host where the probe runs and see if any syslog packets (default port 514) are received. This ensures that the sending device is configured properly.

Best regards, Felix

Hi Osama,

Do the WireShark captures show incoming syslog messages from the device?

Best regards, Felix
