This section describes the Syslog Collection agent.

The Syslog Collection agent allows data to be collected and inserted into a real-time workflow, using the standard Syslog protocol via UDP. 

The agent does not itself decode the incoming messages but distributes this task to subsequent APL agents. An incoming SysLog message is decoded when an APL agent accesses the fields in a consumed SyslogMessageUDR. Decoding errors are logged in the System Log.

Syslog supports IPv4 and IPv6 environments and is compliant with the specifications RFC5424 and RFC3164, and is available in real-time workflow configurations. There are no agent or debug events for this agent.
