How to Stop DNS traffic logs going to Log collector

We have M500 and syslog server getting all the traffic logs.

What we want is do not send DNS logs to M500 only to Syslog server.

Need to know how can i config this ?

 

Currently we have single log forwarding profile.

Create a new log forwarding profile which forwards logs only to Syslog device. Create a specific security policy for DNS traffic as below at the top of rule base and add the newly created log forwarding profile in this rule.

 

Source - All machines

Dest - DNS servers

App - dns

Log Forwarding - Newly created profile

Hi @MP18 ,

 

Configure a second log forwarding profile which will forward to your syslog server and use it on your DNS security policy.

 

You can also configure the 2nd log forwarding profile to only forward DNS logs ... but if you have a seperate rule for DNS traffic you won't even need the application filter:

I configured second log forwarding profile and did application filter to dns.

Then I apply this log forwarding profile to all the security policy where application was dns.
