Integrating Dtex Systems Dtex

Before you configure the Dtex Systems Dtex integration, you must have the IP Address of the USM Appliance Sensor.

To configure Dtex Systems Dtex to send Syslog messages to USM Appliance

  1. Configure your /etc/rsyslog.conf file as follows:

    $ModLoad imfile

    $InputFileName <path to location where Dtex logs are saved>

    $InputFileTag dtex

    $InputFileSeverity <desired log level>

    $InputFileFacility <local syslog facility>


    dtex.log.* @@<USM Appliance_IP_Address>:514

    For the $InputFileName parameter, you add the file path to the log file. The $InputFileFacility parameter specifies the syslog facility assigned to read log entries. For the $InputFileSeverity parameter, specify the log level corresponding to the severity of log messages you want to receive. (The default level is notice.)

  2. Restart the rsyslog service.
