    Hi Team,
    Based on documentation, there is rsyslog function to forward log to Splunk.

    Q. Can we forward Identity Portal/Manager wildfly logs to Splunk ?

    Q. Can we forward the above logs without using Central Log module ?

    regards,
    William

    For monitoring or log analysis purposes, you can forward the central log to a remote Syslog server by Modify the following Syslog configuration file: /etc/rsyslog.d/rsyslog-custom.conf

    Enable a forwarding rule. Examples: Forwarding to a remote syslog server using UDP: *.* @<Remote_Syslog_IP_Address>:514 Forwarding to a remote syslog server using TCP: *.* @@<ip_address.of.remote.syslog>:514

    After the central log is forwarded to a remote Syslog server, you can use applications such as Splunk to monitor and analyze the log.

    Hi Scott, i already read the rsyslog information from Docops.
    The documentation did not mentioned what kind of log file is been forward to remote Syslog server.
    Where to configure what kind of log file will be forward to remote Syslog server ?

    regards,
    William

    The central log service merges all application logs to a single log file: /opt/CA/VirtualAppliance/centralLogs/vapp_central.log

    Once the central log is forwarded to a remote Syslog server, you can use applications such as splunk to monitor and analyze the log.
