Configuring Cisco switch in SIEM

Hello Experts,

I am trying to configure data source for "cisco SG300 small bussniss switch". I have configured the syslog settings in the switch to point the syslogs to my ERC Server on port 514.

Following is the data source settings I have configured in the ESM.

Data Source Vendor : Generic

Data Source Model : Advance Syslog Parser

Data Format  : Default

Data Retrieval : Syslog (Default)

Enabled : parsing (Checked)

Name : SW1

IP Address :

Syslog Relay : None

Mask : 32

Require Syslog TLS : Unchecked

Port : 514

Support Generic Syslogs : Do Nothing

Generic rule assignment : Greyed Out

Time Zone : Jerusalem

But still I am unable to receive logs from the switch. On the ERC I have checked whether switch is sending syslog messages or not by

tcpdump -nni eth1 host

It is showing that the Switch is sending the syslog messages.

Any suggestions

Re: Configuring Cisco switch in SIEM

change Support Generic syslog to log unknown events. Why don't you use Cisco data source types?
