Apply rules in the order you want the Kiwi Syslog Server to receive them. When a rule applies to a message, Kiwi Syslog Server matches the message against each filter in the rule, starting with the top filter.
If each condition in the filter returns
TRUE, Kiwi Syslog Server matches the message against the next filter in that rule.
If a condition in the filter returns
FALSE, processing stops for that rule and Kiwi Syslog Server applies the next rule to the message.
If the messages passes all filters within a rule, Kiwi Syslog Server performs each action in order, starting with the action at the top of the list. When Kiwi Syslog Server completes the actions within a rule, and then applies the next rule.
When you install Kiwi Syslog Server, it automatically creates a rule called Default that applies two actions to each message:
- Displays each message on the Kiwi Syslog Service Manager console.
- Logs each message to the
SyslogCatchAll.txtfile, located in the
\Logsdirectory of the Kiwi Syslog Server installation folder.
