The RASlog Service is aware of all devices that are registered with the services in EFA and processes events only from those devices. Messages from other devices are dropped.
The RASlog Service performs the following functions:
- Acts as a syslog server to process syslog messages from devices
- Acts as an SNMP trap receiver to process traps from devices
With the RASlog Service, EFA receives events from network devices and the Inventory service learns of relevant changes. The Inventory Service can fetch the current state of network topology and update Fabric and Tenant services.
