Tech Tips: GMS - Various Syslog file formats during Summarization
An essential component of network security is monitoring critical network events and activity, such as security threats, inappropriate Web use, and bandwidth levels. SonicWall GMS Reporting provides detailed and comprehensive reports of network activity including both real-time and historical reports to offer a complete view of all activities through SonicWall Internet Security Appliances.
Its a rare stuff that nobody notices the background process involved in presenting the graphical data as reports in the user interface. The below KB article involves the complete steps involved in the syslog summarization.
Hope this article makes much more sense and help people to troubleshoot a bit when no data is shown on the GMS for the reason of syslogs not summarized.
