Add and modify connectors for agent devices

Connectors intercept events sent from a specific product on your network and convert those events into normalized messages that LEM can understand.

  1. To view you connectors, select an agent on the Nodes tab, and then click Manage Node Connectors.


    For Manager connectors, click the Manager Connectors tab to view configured and available connectors.

  2. Find the connector to configure. Type part of the connector name in the search box, or use the filter menus in the Refine Results panel.

  1. Select an available connector, and then click Add Connector.

  2. Complete the connector configuration form. The following fields are common across most connectors:
    • Name: Enter a user-friendly label for your connectors.
    • Log File: Enter the location of the log file that the connector will normalize. This is a location on either the local computer (Agents), or the LEM appliance (non-Agent devices).
    • Output: Normalized, Raw + Normalized, Raw. You only need to configure these values if LEM is configured to save raw (unnormalized) log messages.
  3. Click Add.
  4. To start a connector, select a configured connector, and then click Start.
