5.1 - Storage Administrative System Auditing - Log Forwarding protocol tcp-encrypted

Information

Log and audit information is invaluable to an organization from a support and availability standpoint. In addition, the information and details contained in logs (syslog) and audit reports and outputs are generally of a sensitive nature. To maintain security controls and posture, it is imperative that organizations manage log and audit data in a secure manner.

Solution

Offloading of syslog information is necessary for limiting the scope or footprint of a breach to a single system or solution. Therefore, NetApp recommends securely offloading syslog information to a secure storage or retention location.

The cluster log-forwarding create command creates log-forwarding destinations for remote logging.
