Importing log files in EventLog Analyzer
Real-time log analysis helps administrators collect usage and performance statistics as well as identify threat patterns, anomalous behaviors, and vulnerabilities in their network. However, past log data can help uncover even more vital information using forensic analysis. EventLog Analyzer comes with advanced import functionalities that allow users to easily analyze saved syslog and event log files.
Advanced import options
With EventLog Analyzer, it's easy to import multiple files at once. Users can select multiple log files and import them in a single import configuration. When needed, they can also select all files from any folder using the "Select Folder Option" from the file browser. The "Quick Import" option lets users quickly import files without having to mention the log type, as it’ll be automatically identified by EventLog Analyzer. If the log type is not automatically identified, a new format is created and the default parser rules are applied to the imported files.
Multiple supported protocols
Users can import log files to the EventLog Analyzer server from their local host machine or any remote machine as well. EventLog Analyzer allows users to import log files using several protocols such as FTP, SFTP, SCP, SMB, HTTP, HTTPS, FILE, and UNC paths. Users can also import log files that are stored online by providing a URL.
Advanced scheduling options
EventLog Analyzer goes one step ahead and provides options to automate log importing. With advanced scheduling, users can pick any date, month, and time of the day—including the millisecond—and build a profile to periodically import files. This completely automates the log import process, saving users from having to do this mundane task.
Dynamic filename patterns
While creating profiles to import logs, users can enter the filename pattern manually or select it from a list of predefined patterns. EventLog Analyzer also features dynamic filename patterning, so users can create custom patterns if they come across unique log filenames. Filename patterns can contain numbers and dates, including the day, hour, minute, or even millisecond.
User can use the progress bar to track the log import process. With the advanced summary report page, users can view a quick synopsis of which logs have been imported and the time of creation as well.
