LI Agent to collect Microsoft Event Viewer in XML format

Microsoft (until recently) has not natively supported syslog. Event viewer's native format is XML. While the LI agent can collect event viewer logs, it formats them in a proprietary way. It would be ideal to collect in a standard format so when forwarding such events to a third party syslog destination (e.g. SIEM) the third party could properly parse it (without a custom parser). XML is that standard for Microsoft. ...more »

Inherit agent groups from master cluster

We, like many other enterprise users have many distributed vRLI Servers around the world that effectively serve as forwarders to a master cluster. It would be ideal if these servers inherited the agent configuration from the master cluster so all sub-servers do not need configured with agent groups. This will prevent configuration drift of the multiple servers acting as forwarders. There should however, be the ability ...more »

Role to manage Agent configuration

As of today, in order to manage Agent configuration the user needs to have "Super Admin" role which has very wide scope including the ability to manage access control.

 

We should be able to delegate Agent Configuration to some "power users" without giving them the ability to alter Access Control.

 

An "Agent Admin" role would great in that objective.

 

Thanks.

Laurent.

Multiple Virtual IP Addresses Priority

When Multiple Virtual IP Addresses are configured the recently added VIP is the default for the agent default Configuration.

 

This should be selectable. Otherwise wrong tags are maybe added…

Force new config file

I would like to see the ability to force agents in a Group to copy the config from the agent Group into their liagent.ini file as startup config. After doing a mass deploy of agents i found that all agents come With auto_update=yes commented out, and if I use the option to change it in the agent Groups, it will not work as the agent obviously reads the local file at the time where the auto update is triggered. For me ...more »

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.

Log Insight Agent - send logs to multiple different destinations

Initial use-case: Our team supports the Operating System, while the Application Team supports their application. The Application Team already has their own Log Insight cluster setup to collect their application logs with the LI Agent. Because of this, we are unable to use the LI Agent to collect the Operating System logs. Ideally we would like to be able to send OS logs to our LI, and application logs to their LI. Forwarding ...more »

Enhance logging of Log Insight agent for parsing errors

I was trying to set up a content pack that included a csv parser in the agent configuration that was being pushed out. Because the actual log files contained extra fields that weren't defined in the parser, no fields were getting tagged appropriately. I was able to find this out and fix it eventually, but the Log Insight agent log didn't give any indication that this was happening. It would have reduced my troubleshooting ...more »

Application Autodiscovery

When Content packs are added post agent deployment on large estates, each agent's configuration requires updating to add the relevant section to the liagent.ini or the liagent-effective.ini. The recommended route is via the UI, but when the estate is large and there are many forwarders, then it becomes quite a task to determine which content packs are relevant to each of the target agents. It would be fantastic (and ...more »
