If the default UDP protocol is used for communication between the hosts and devices to the Central Log Server, then log records that do not reach the log server are not detected as a data loss. The use of TCP to transport log records to the log servers improves delivery reliability.


Configure the ASA to use TCP when sending log records to the syslog server.

ASA(config)# logging host NDM_INTERFACE 6/1514
ASA(config)# logging permit-hostdown
