Windows Event Log Collection with Agent
EventLog Analyzer collects event logs from distributed Windows devices. 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 devices. Agent has to be installed in one of the devices and it can collect the logs upto 25 devices within the LAN.
Agent for event log collection
EventLog Analyzer Agent collects event logs generated by Windows devices. Installation and set up of EventLog Analyzer Agent to collect and report on event logs from Windows devices 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 devices. 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 devices. Devices 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. Devices can be unassigned from one agent and assigned to another devices as per your requirement.
In case an agent is deleted or uninstalled, log collection for all the devices assigned to agent will be automatically and seamlessly switched to agent less direct collection mode. If the device, in which the agent is installed, is deleted, in that case also, log collection for all the devices assigned to that particular agent will be automatically and seamlessly switched to agent less direct collection mode.
