Micro Focus ArcSight Logger is a universal log management solution that unifies searching, reporting, alerting, and analysis across any type of enterprise log data-making it unique in its ability to collect, analyze, and store massive amounts of data generated by modern networks.
The Logger receives syslog messages from a variety of devices in the enterprise. Micro Focus Network Node Manager i Software (NNMi) users will be interested in a subset of these syslog messages.  A set of filters configured within Logger determine which syslog messages to forward to NNMi. Logger forwards these syslog messages using a trap transport mechanism.

The MF Network Node Manager i-MF ArcSight Logger integration adds syslog information to NNMi so that NNMi users can view these syslog messages and investigate potential problems.

The NNMi-ArcSight Logger integration includes the following features:
  • Syslog message forwarding from Logger to NNMi via a trap transport mechanism in the ArcSightEvent trap
  • Syslog message processing
  • Management event and trap forwarding from NNMi to Logger
  • NNMi Logger Integration module for ease of configuration
  • Syslog filter generator
  • Syslog message configuration table view
  • Action to open an associated configuration from a selected syslog message
  • Syslog Messages incident browsing table view
  • Enable/disable syslog menu action
  • Cross launch to Logger
  • Syslog tab in Analysis pane

Beginning with NNMi 9.20, the following integration feature is also available:

  • Forwarding of syslog messages through the NNMi Northbound Interface
