The attached script is a linux syslog message generator that can be useful to generate syslog events and forward them to the Log Analytics platform.
Log Analytics for CA App Experience Analytics and CA Unified Infrastructure Management (CA UIM) is a new feature in CA UIM 8.5.1 that streamlines the log analysis process and helps you troubleshoot faster.
There are some config parameters in the script such as:
Destination IP (host where Log Analytics is installed)
Sleep secs (How long to wait in between sending messages)
Count (How many message to send at a time)
The script makes use of netcat command to send the syslog messages via UDP so rsyslog.conf file in the target server should have these lines uncommented:
# Provides UDP syslog reception
This tool can help us to generate volume data in our Log Analytics Platform as shown below:
