Multiplexer or Bridge Service is not running or not responding
Administrator Help | Forcepoint Web Security and Forcepoint URL Filtering | v8.5.x
Multiplexer receives log data from Filtering Service and forwards it to the Bridge Service and to Log Server. Bridge Service then forwards data to the Cloud App Service and, when SIEM integration is enabled on the Settings >General > SIEM Integration page, to the SIEM Connector. Log Server forwards log data to the Log Database for use in reporting.
If Multiplexer is not running or not available, a failover feature ensures that Filtering Service passes log data directly to Log Server, but data is not forwarded to the Bridge Service.
When Bridge Service is not receiving data, is stopped, or is not responding, no cloud app or SIEM data can be forwarded to the appropriate service. SIEM logs and the Cloud Applications report do not show data for transactions logged while either of these services is stopped or not responding.
