EventLog Analyzer collects event logs from distributed Windows hosts. Agent less log collection is incorporated in EventLog Analyzer architecture. Collect Windows event logs with agents is added to facilitate easy log collection across WAN and through Firewall.
Note: Log collection using Agent is optional. By default, EventLog Analyzer deploys agent-less log collection. If your enterprise IT security policy does not allow opening WMI ports, etc., you can optionally use the Agents to collect the logs from hosts. Agent has to be installed in one of the hosts and it can collect the logs upto 25 hosts within the LAN.
EventLog Analyzer Agent collects event logs generated by Windows hosts. Installation and set up of EventLog Analyzer Agent to collect and report on event logs from Windows hosts is a simple process. When the agent is installed, the result status 'Success/Failed <with reason>/Retry' will be displayed. In case of failure of automatic installation of agent, manual installation is possible. The agent can be deployed in any server in the network or sub-net. It is installed as a 'Service' in that server.
Agents will be automatically discovered by EventLog Analyzer server and the agents will automatically collect the logs from Windows hosts. The agent remotely collect the logs. It pre-processes the logs and transfers to the server in real-time and in an uninterrupted manner.
The agent can collect the logs from approximately 25 hosts. Hosts can be assigned to any agent for log collection as required and also logs can be directly collected by the EventLog Analyzer server with out the agent. Hosts can be unassigened from one agent and assigned to another hosts as per your requirement.
In case an agent is deleted or uninstalled, log collection for all the hosts assigned to agent will be automatically and seamlessly switched to agent less direct collection mode. If the host, in which the agent is installed, is deleted, in that case also, log collection for all the hosts assigned to that particular agent will be automatically and seamlessly switched to agent less direct collection mode.
