Configuration

SNMP

FortiSIEM uses SNMP to discover and monitor this device. Make sure SNMP is enabled for the device as directed in its product documentation. For more information, refer to sections "Discovery Settings" and "Setting Credentials" in the User Guide.

SNMP Trap

FortiSIEM processes events from this device via SNMP traps sent by the device. Configure the device to send send SNMP traps to FortiSIEM as directed in the device's product documentation, and FortiSIEM will parse the contents.

Example SNMP Trap

2012-01-18 14:13:43 0.0.0.0(via UDP: [192.168.20.243]:161) TRAP2, SNMP v2c, community public                . Cold Start Trap (0) Uptime: 0:00:00.00         DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance = Timeticks: (33131) 0:05:31.31                SNMPv2-MIB::snmpTrapOID.0 = OID: SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.3375.2.5.0.1
Syslog

FortiSIEM processes events from this device via syslog sent by the device. Configure the device to send syslog to FortiSIEM as directed in the device's product documentation, and FortiSIEM will parse the contents.

  • For Syslog Server, or the server where the syslog should be sent, enter the IP address of your FortiSIEM virtual appliance.
  • For Port, enter 514.
  • Make sure that the syslog type is Common Event Format (CEF). The syslog format should be the same as that shown in the example.
Example Syslog
