Set up your network devices so they send syslog data to New Relic One.
- A New Relic account. Don't have one? Sign up for free! No credit card required.
- A New Relic account ID.
- A New Relic license key.
- Docker installed in a Linux host.
- SSH access to the Docker host, with the ability to launch new containers.
- Configured network devices to send syslog to the host running the ktranslate docker container. Here's how to configure network syslog data collection in some devices:
Source devices for syslog data
The default listening port for ktranslate is
5143 (TCP/UDP). If you need to use the default syslog port of
514 (or any other port), you can do so by providing a new listening endpoint during Docker runtime. For example:
- Go to one.newrelic.com and click Add more data.
- Scroll down until you see Network performance monitoring and click Syslog.
- Follow the steps in New Relic One.
one.newrelic.com > Add more data > Network performance monitoring > SNMP to set up SNMP data monitoring.
If you prefer to do the setup manually, see the instructions below.
Investigate your device syslog messages in the New Relic One logs UI, using the following query:
To get better visibility into your network device performance, set up SNMP data monitoring.
To get better visibility into how your network is being used, set up network flow data monitoring.
