    Hi @jst3751

    Both are Sonicwall Syslog Format & only the difference I noticed as same as below;

    Default Syslog : Default Sonicwall Syslog Format you cannot do the Syslog customize.

    Enhanced Syslog : Enhanced Sonicwal syslog Format you can do the customize the Syslog settings. For example you can exclude SonicPoint Stats

    NB: The Host (sn) and Event ID(m) options are dimmed as they cannot be changed.

    Hi @JST3751,

    Thank you for visiting SonicWall Community.

    Here is the difference.

    Default Syslog Format - This is the default SonicWall Syslog format. This format is required for GMS or Reporting software.

    Enhanced Syslog Format - With this format selected, the configure icon becomes active. Clicking on the configure icon launches a configuration dialog where you can select the specific settings that you want to log. So, this option is basically to customize the logging as needed. Below is just a screenshot for your reference.

    Hope this helps.
