i need the logs for my SIEM System, is there a posibility for other options to see logs with login status?
You could install rsyslog to get syslog logfiles again if your SIEM doesn't support systemd journal.
I was also looking to install Wuzah where it looks like it isn't supporting systemd journal drectly. So options there would be either install rsyslog again or let journald output the logs as json and pipe that into a file which you then let your SIEM analyse if it supports json logs (which in both bases results in unnecessary SSD wear as all logs then get written 3 times...).
Ideally I would like to only use systemd journal stored in RAM and let that Wuzah agent read that and collect them centralized in a DB.

For using fail2ban-regex with systemd as the backend use:
fail2ban-regex systemd-journal /etc/fail2ban/filter.d/proxmox.conf
