About this release

Welcome to syslog-ng Store Box. This document describes what is new in the latest version of syslog-ng Store Box (SSB).

This is a Feature Release, which means that it will be supported for 6 months after the original publication date and for 2 months after a succeeding Feature or LTS Release is published (whichever date is later). Note that only the last of the feature releases is supported - for example, when a new feature release comes out, the last one becomes unsupported.

For a full description on stable and feature releases, open the SSB product page on the Support Portal and navigate to Product Life Cycle & Policies > Product Support Policies > Software Product Support Lifecycle Policy.

NOTE: Due to complexity of deployment, configuration, and design, you may require assistance from One Identity Professional Services while introducing new or additional:

  • sources

  • destinations

  • log paths

  • significant increases in log volume.

One Identity Professional Services is equipped and trained to evaluate the needs of any organization, and to provide configuration and architectural recommendations that help our users get the most out of any SSB version.

One Identity Professional Services offer assistance in planning and scoping for current needs, as well as recommendations for the future to ensure success.
