| It is critical for the appropriate personnel to be aware if a system is at risk of failing to process audit logs as required. Without this notification, the security personnel may be unaware of an impending failure of the audit capability and system operation may be adversely affected.
Audit processing failures include software/hardware errors, failures in the audit capturing mechanisms, and audit storage capacity being reached or exceeded.
Using a syslog logging target, the MQ Appliance logs audit events, including audit processing failures. Logging may be set to the following logging levels in descending order of criticality: debug, info, notice, warn, error, alert, emerg. The default is notice.
The MQ appliance is configured to create the event in the logs that will be used to send an alert. The alerting process must be performed by a third-party alerting utility, centralized log management, or SIEM. |
