Monitoring ZCS Servers > Zimbra Logger

Zimbra Logger
The Logger includes tools for syslog aggregation and reporting. Installing the Logger is optional, but if you do not install it, server statistics and server status information are not captured.
In environments with more than one ZCS server, Logger is enabled on one mailbox server only. This server is designated as the monitor host. The ZCS monitor host is responsible for checking the status of all the other ZCS servers and presenting this information on the Zimbra administration console. Real-time service status, MTA, spam, virus traffic and performance statistics can be displayed. The Logger creates a daily report about mail activity, such as the number of messages, average delivery delay, and errors generated.
In a multi-server installation, you must set up the syslog configuration files on each server to enable Logger to display the server statistics on the administration console, and you must enable the Logger host. If you did not configure this when you installed ZCS, do so now.
