Contents of syslog messages about events for file transmission to the KATA server

December 13, 2023

ID 189081

Information about a file being scheduled for KATA upload and the results of uploading the file to KATA are written to the operating system log over the Syslog protocol.

Each syslog message contains the following fields defined by the parameters of the Syslog protocol in the operating system:

  • date and time of the event;
  • name of the host where the event happened;
  • name of the application (the value is always KWTS).

Either the KATA upload scheduling field or the KATA uploading field is transmitted depending on the type of event. Syslog message fields, which are defined by application settings, are presented in the format <key>="<value>". If a key has multiple values, these values are separated with a comma. A colon is used as the separator between keys.

The keys, as well as their values contained in a message, are presented in the table below.
