    Install Agent

    EventLog Analyzer provides optional agent to collect event logs from Windows machines.

    Note: Agent less log collection is incorporated in EventLog Analyzer architecture. Collecting Windows event logs with agents is added to facilitate easy log collection across WAN and through Firewall. Using agent to collect logs is optional and the default log collection mechanism is agent-less using WMI/DCOM. Optional agent will be useful for companies which have the security policy that disallows WMI/DCOM mode of communication with Windows machines.

    How to install EventLog Analyzer agent?

    To install an agent, use the following menu option:

    • Settings tab > Admin Settings: Install Agent: Install Agent

    To install the agent, follow the steps given below:

    Install Agent

    2. Alternatively, use the Pick Hosts link to select one or multiple machines from the Windows workgroups and domains to install the agents in those machines

    3. The Domain Name field is optional. Enter the domain name of the machines, if entered manually. Pick Hosts menu will automatically fill this field

    4. Enter the login name and password to access the machine(s) and install the agent(s). The login account should have admin privileges to install the agent.

    5. Use the Verify Login link to validate the credentials. If multiple hosts are selected, ensure that the credentials are valid for all the hosts

    6. Click Save button to install the agent(s)

    How Agent based log collection works

    EventLog Analyzer uses web server port 8400(default) bidirectionally in http/https to communicate from Agent server to EventLog Analyzer server and vice-versa.
