Monitor > External Logs

Use this page to view logs ingested from the Traps™ Endpoint Security Manager (ESM) into Log Collectors that are managed by Panorama™. To view Traps ESM logs on Panorama, do the following:
  • On the Traps ESM server, configure Panorama as a Syslog server and select the logging events to forward to Panorama. The events can include security events, policy changes, agent and ESM Server status changes, and changes to configuration settings.
  • On a Panorama that is deployed in Panorama mode with one or more Managed Log Collectors, set up a log ingestion profile (Panorama > Log Ingestion Profile) and attach the profile to a Collector Group (Panorama > Collector Groups) in which to store the Traps ESM logs.
External logs are not associated with a device group and are visible only when you select Device Group: All because the logs are not forwarded from firewalls.
