KeyCDN Log Forwarding

Updated on October 4, 2018

The raw logs can be received through syslog. Here’s how to enable syslog to receive your raw logs in real-time:

  1. Login to the dashboard
  2. Navigate to Account Settings > General > Real-time Log Forwarding
  3. Configure your destination server, destination port, and token

It is highly recommended to take advantage of the token feature when configuring your syslog settings. When generating a token, you may use any hexadecimal value from 0-z and separate each value or combination of values by a dash “-” as seen in the screenshot above. Your token can also be up to 45 characters long. A few token examples include:

1a-2b-3c-4d-5e
your-sec-token-key-101
1abc-efg2-3hig-4lmn-5opq

Use the following regular expression with regex101 to validate the token value you define:

^[a-z0-9]+-[a-z0-9]+-[a-z0-9]+-[a-z0-9]+-[a-z0-9]+$
