After you have deployed an agent, you can configure it to send events to the vRealize Log Insight server that you select, specify communication protocols, and so on.

Use these instructions as required to configure your agents to your requirements.

You can configure the Log Insight Windows Agent after the installation. You must edit the liagent.ini file to configure Log Insight Windows Agent to send events to a vRealize Log Insight server of your choice, set communication protocol and port, add Windows event channels, and configure flat file log collection.

You can configure the Log Insight Linux Agent after you install it.. The liagent.ini file is located in /var/lib/loginsight-agent/. Edit the file to configure the Log Insight Linux Agent to send events to a vRealize Log Insight server of your choice, set communication protocol and port, and configure flat file log collection.

You can configure multiple Windows or Linux vRealize Log Insight agents.

Agent-side log parsers extract structured data from raw logs before delivering to the vRealize Log Insight server. Using log parsers, vRealize Log Insight can analyze logs, extract information from them, and show those results on the server. Log parsers can be configured for both Windows and Linux vRealize Log Insight Agents.
