Product Line
EcoStruxure Control Expert  

Environment
Unity Pro v13, BMEP581020 v2.50

Resolution
Unity Pro Syslog is based on RFC 5424 (Transport Mapping for Syslog) and it defines the strucuture of the message created by the software but some of the available Syslog Server doesn't have the option to use RFC 5424 processing. So these servers will show a message that is not clear for the user as you can see below:


Schneider Electric recommends to use the WinSyslog as the server or any other Syslog Server that has the features to configure the listener and messages as highlited in yelllow on the pictures below using the RFC 5424 processing.


After configure this option on your Syslog server, the messages will show as below and you can see that it is easier to understand the log message.
