Syslog overview

Syslog uses the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) to transport event log information from the meter directly to a centralized syslog server.

The syslog server can receive logs from multiple devices, including meters, then store and filter the log information as needed. You can use ION Setup to modify the syslog network settings for your device. Syslog is a useful feature to help maintain meter log information for extended periods of time.

NOTE: Ethernet is required to use the syslog feature.

Syslog is an open standard allowing you to use any one of a number of syslog server applications currently available. The decision regarding which syslog server solution to use can be based on budget and your technical requirements. See the individual syslog server’s documentation for more information.
