Connectrix MDS-Series Data Center Network Manager
In our attempts, we did select Splunk IP and port 514 and selected syslogs and all wildcard.
The Splunk server is not a trap receiver and only listens on 514.
In the end, there was a possibility to check if user could move the MDS logging server functions from splunk to DCNM and allow DCNM to be the syslog aggregator/forwarder.
Future Enhancement in DCNM:
DCNM does not support forwarding as native syslogs. Syslog content would be packaged as varbind/s in SNMP trap…or embedded in email.
Cisco BU mentioned Account folks could look into the above as a feature enhancement in the future release.
If the business/use case is deemed appropriate, Cisco BU could scope an effort based on feature priorities.
