Video Blog: Joyent Cloud Firewall Logging

Cloud Firewall (CFW) Logging also known as RFD 163 is a feature where we will start logging specific kinds of firewall records in a manner that doesn’t require as many per compute node resources. This logging will allow us to pay attention to inbound packets that drop. 

We want to record new TCP connections or connectionless UDP sessions in a manner that fits in nicely and are “aggregatable” into a proper Triton deployment. To activate this, a user has to opt into logging by marking a firewall rule with the "log" attribute.
