Using MongoDB with rsyslog and LogAnalyzer

In this scenario we want to receive cee-formatted messages from a different system with rsyslog, store the messages with MongoDB and then display the stored messages with Adiscon LogAnalyzer. This is a very common use-case. Please read through the complete guide before starting.

We will split this guide in 3 main parts. These parts can consist of several steps.

  1. Setting up rsyslog
  2. Setting up MongoDB
  3. Setting up LogAnalyzer

Running LogAnalyzer on IIS7

The usual user of Adiscon LogAnalyzer is using it on a Apache Webserver. But on the other hand, there are some customers who want to use it on IIS. Though, it is not ideally optimized for IIS, it still works. Unfortunately, the installation process is not entirely straight forward and installing PHP (which is a requirement) might give one or another a rather hard time. Now, fortunately, we found a very easy way to get things set up correctly, which we want to show. Continue reading “Running LogAnalyzer on IIS7”

Using rsyslog mmnormalize module effectively with Adiscon LogAnalyzer

Using the mmnormalize module in rsyslog is a bit complicated at first. We want to describe in this article how to set up the basic components for using log normalization. In addition to that we will show how to configure these components so messages will be split into pieces of information. These pieces of information should then be written into a database for review with Adiscon LogAnalyzer. Continue reading “Using rsyslog mmnormalize module effectively with Adiscon LogAnalyzer”

How to create automated daily/weekly reports?

Wouldn’t it be nice to get the reports in a preconfigured time interval, for example every day or every week?

The reports module is integrated since version 3 of LogAnalyzer. It supports HTML and PDF output and can be fully parameterized. For example, Adiscon LogAnalyzer can be used to analyze user account logons over a specific time frame, system and network errors can be identified or a status report of the whole network be generated. And at it bests: once configured, reports can be sent automatically by email in a daily, weekly or custom interval. Continue reading “How to create automated daily/weekly reports?”
