About the LEM Manager component

Originally, LEM was sold as a physical appliance that you deployed on your network. Today, the LEM Manager is the virtual image of a Linux-based appliance. The LEM Manager VM (virtual machine) can be easily deployed on a host computer running a VMware® or Microsoft® hypervisor.

The LEM documentation uses the term virtual machine (or VM) to refer to the LEM virtual appliance that runs on the hypervisor.

The LEM Manager collects and processes log and event information. It includes the following systems and services:

  • Hardened Linux® OS
  • Syslog Server and SNMP Trap Receiver
  • High compression, search-optimized database
  • Web server
  • Correlation engine
