Ability to Set SSL=yes when installing windows agent with MSI

Currently unable to set SSL=yes when using the command line parameters. It is possible to set all the other important parameters, protocol, host, port but not SSL. This is especially important if your LI servers need to be set to SSL only.

 

Yes you could create a MST but this is a rather complicated solution to a simple problem.

Feature Request - Using Log Insight as a Forwarder and retaining source IP

We are using a third party SIEM. Due to the layout of the network and security requirements, we can only use log insight if it can forward all syslog and event log data to our SIEM. The problem is that the SIEM relies on the source IP of the system that generated the syslog data to be able to do its analytics. It creates a log source for each new syslog packet with a distinct IP address. We would like to use Log Insight, ...more »

Log Insight Configuration Backup

Currently there is no method of backing up the Log Insight database or configuration files from the Log Insight Console. Providing a method of backing up manually, or on a scheduled time frame, would provide a benefit for off site backup, and disaster recovery solutions.

Alert when log source is not sending logs

Currently there is no alerting when Log Insight Master or Worker is not receiving logs/API events from its workers or agents. Part of the PCI compliance requires notification when a stoppage of logs is detected.

 

If this could be an alarm, or an automated email that is sent out, and have the ability to set certain thresholds (no logs within 30 minutes, 60 minutes, 3 hours, etc), that would be great.

Support globs for filelog directory option in Windows Agent

The agent should support globs (asterisk and wildcard) for folders. THe use case is IIS where multiple domains exist on the same server. Something like this

 

directory= E:\sitecoredata\*\Data\logs

include=log*.txt

So then I could make one that does them all type thing.

 

Globs are supported for files so this is an inconsistency in the product as well.

Datatype-aware field extraction

Sometimes log messages contain embedded data with a fixed standard format, like XML, JSON or CSV, either when logging about configuration/state information or when the messages aren't really logs. Attempting to parse out any of these formats with regular expressions is difficult (and in the case of XML, strongly discouraged), especially when the structure includes nesting, lists or esoteric quoting/escaping rules.
