Custom Report Syslog

Hi All, 


I have a client who asks me if it is possible to generate a report (for example, an annual report) where part of the records are stored in a Syslog.

My question is, can the FW extract information from the Syslog to create a report?

I appreciate your help.

No it's not. Generally in a situation like this I would actually recommend going the other way around. Move all of the required logs off of the firewall and into something you can actually use to make all the pretty graphs and reports and such. Whether that be syslog or csv or whatever, it just needs to be in a format that you feel comfortable building a report with.
