A Cloud Proxy receives log and event information from monitored sources and sends this information to vRealize Log Insight Cloud, where it can be queried and analyzed. The Cloud Proxy includes a built-in syslog server that is constantly active when the Cloud Proxy is running.

Note: The maximum size supported for UDP syslog messages is 1024 bytes.

Messages that the syslog server ingests become searchable in the vRealize Log Insight Cloud web user interface near real time.

For port information about the Cloud Proxy, see Port Requirements of Cloud Proxy and Cloud Native Collector.

For syslog formats, see Syslog Agents for vRealize Log Insight Cloud.
