We have recently Purchased Log Analyzer for our environment, we monitor 600+ network devices through NPM and all these devices are configured to send the syslogs to Solarwinds server. After we installed LA in our environment all these devices have taken the licences that we have bough and in fact exceeded the licenses that we own for LA. When i disable log monitoring to on some devices to save licenses, i am not able to see the syslog messages from these nodes under syslog section on Orion webconsole. Does disabling log monitoring feature for a node makes it not able to send the syslog messages? Please advice.
That is correct. The legacy syslog and trap features are replaced by Orion Log Viewer when you install Log Analyzer and the log monitor feature must be active on a node for syslogs to be captured from that node.
