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).

Usage of variables in liagent.ini

It would be great if we could use variable (for example $HOSTNAME) and other environment settings in the liagent.ini file. We would be able to use variables for tagging or log file locations.

This would allow to refine configurations and use the same file on a number of systems.

LogInsight windows agent - need to configurable 'retry' on filelog chanel

Hi! we use puppet to configure our systems. sometimes loginsight module is loaded before the component it is going to monitor, springtc for example. the liagent.ini has a path to springtc logs directory, but since it is not built yet - loginsight gets an error and marks it dormant...

we need a “retry” option for each channel – if path does not exists loginsight agent should retry without requiring a restart.

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.
