Test a filter or an action

Before enabling a rule, test the filters or actions to make sure they work as intended.

Test the filter or action setup dialog

When you add a filter or action, you can test your configuration.

  1. From the Kiwi Syslog Server NG navigation bar, choose Setup > Settings > Test Message.
  2. Select the protocol and complete the relevant fields for your test message. Click Apply.
  3. Once you have applied your changes, click Test.

    A green toast message will appear in the upper-right corner of the user display if the test message sends successfully.

Use the Kiwi SyslogGen utility

You can test filters and actions using Kiwi SyslogGen, a free utility that generates and sends syslog messages. You can specify message properties such as priority, message text, and sending IP address.

  1. Go to the Kiwi Syslog Free Products and Utilities page and download Kiwi SyslogGen.
  2. Install Kiwi SyslogGen on the computer where Kiwi Syslog Server NG is installed.
  3. Use Kiwi SyslogGen to generate messages that meet the filter criteria, and verify that the results are what you intended.
