To configure NGINX to send log data over syslog to USM Anywhere
Edit the logging directives error_log and access_log, as shown:
error_log syslog:server=<USM_Anywhere_IP>:514,tag=nginx debug
severity can equal any of the following values, in increasing severity:

Messages are logged at the selected level and all levels above that, if any.
The Nginx plugin automatically processes all messages that have the syslog tag nginx.
