Getting Data In

Best App or View for Cisco Syslog & Firewall Data?



I noticed that there are a number of different Apps available for Cisco devices. I'd like to hear from the community which one they recommend to view Cisco Syslog and Firewall data from a Cisco router (not PIX).

I know this question is old, but in case anyone finds their way to this thread there is now an app and an add-on available for Cisco IOS and WLC devices:


Hi Will,

is there any predefined content for cisco switches right now. The pre defined content for comming with the cisco apps will not work with cisco switch logs.

Hi James, While Splunk and Cisco have not yet developed any pre-defined content for Cisco routers you can very easily leverage Splunk for this type of reporting. Which Cisco devices are you trying to report on? The existing Cisco Firewall add-on could possibly work for this data as most of the log formats for Cisco firewalls tend to be the same.
