The “Splunk Format” is legacy and should not be used for new deployments see Log Exporter (Syslog)

Key Facts

  • Format is not conformant to RFC3164 avoid use
  • MSG Format based filter
  • Legacy BSD Format default port 514

The Splunk host field will be derived as follows using the first match

  • Use the hostname field
  • Use the first CN component of origin_sic_name/originsicname
  • If host is not set from CN use the hostname field
  • If host is not set use the BSD syslog header host

If the host is in the format <host>-v_<bladename> use bladename for host
