Getting Data In

Best way to get JunOS logs into Splunk



I am new to Splunk and I am trying to workout the best way to get logs from JunOS based firewalls into Splunk. I am currently using Syslogh, but this isn't getting all the information I am after. Could someone advise the most reliable way of collecting the informaiton?

I am trying to get the logs from Juniper SRX firewalls.

I would also like to know how I could achieve change monitoring as well?

Many thanks

I believe most of the Juniper firewalls are capable of sending syslog type output and they also write to log files. I know of multiple use cases where Juniper data is sent via a network input to Splunk. I see two options:

  1. Leverage the log forwarding capability of the firewall and send it to Splunk via a network input (typically port 514 UDP or TCP, and make sure you specify syslog sourcetype)

  2. If you can send the file to a directory on the Splunk system, you could use a basic file or directory monitoring input. You would also want to specify the syslog sourcetype in this configuration.
