Troubleshooting Sync Issues
The Log Streaming table provides the following sync status information:
|Synced||Log has synced successfully|
|Sync in progress||Log is currently syncing|
|Pending initial sync||Log has not synced yet|
|Not synced||Log has not synced recently, there may be a temporary sync issue. Indicates the time since the last successful sync|
If the log sync indicator is red, take the following action:
- Ensure that the Syslog service is running
- Ensure the Syslog service is configured to receive logs using the selected port and protocol type in the Syslog settings
- Ensure all the connector machines in the Log Streaming connector zone can access the Syslog server port
