Horizon Workspace exports application-level events to the external syslog server. Operating system events are not exported.

Since most companies do not have unlimited disk space, Horizon Workspace does not save the complete logging history for each virtual machine. If you want to save more history, or create a centralized location for your logging history, you can set up an external syslog server.

If you do not configure a syslog server during the initial configuration, you can configure it later from the Syslog Configuration page in the Configurator Web interface.

Set up an external syslog server. You can use any of the standard syslog servers available. Several syslog servers include advanced search capabilities.
