The Axxera’s Central Intelligence Logger is an Open Log Management platform allows customers to collect and analyze all of their log data from virtually any device, application or operating system, with features that ensure information intelligence and increase efficiency. CI Logger Open Log Management provides agile reporting and fast search capabilities, as well as security features to protect data integrity, allowing for reliable long-term storage of unaltered log data.
To compliment the CI Logger, axxera's sensor constantly sends the data in native format for correlation and security analysis. These events are then transformed to ITIL framework for remediation and reporting purpose.
The CI Logger application is a flexible and highly scalable system logging application that is ideal for creating centralized and trusted logging solutions. The main features of CI Logger are summarized below.
The CI Logger application enables you to send the log messages of your hosts to remote servers using the latest protocol standards. The logs of different servers can be collected and stored centrally on dedicated log servers. Transferring log messages using the TCP protocol ensures that no messages are lost.
Log messages may contain sensitive information that should not be accessed by third parties. Therefore, CI Logger uses the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol to encrypt the communication. TLS also allows the mutual authentication of the host and the server using X.509 certificates.
The Premium Edition of CI Logger stores messages on the local hard disk if the central log server or the network connection becomes unavailable. The CI Logger application automatically sends the stored messages to the server when the connection is reestablished, in the same order the messages were received. The disk buffer is persistent – no messages are lost even if CI Logger is restarted.
Storing your log messages in a database allows you to easily search and query the messages and interoperate with log analyzing applications. The Premium Edition of CI Logger supports the following databases: MSSQL, MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, and SQLite.
The Premium Edition of CI Logger can store log messages securely in encrypted, compressed, and time stamped binary files. Timestamps can be requested from an external Time stamping Authority (TSA).
The CI Logger application is the ideal choice to collect logs in massively heterogeneous environments using several different operating systems and hardware platforms, including Linux, Unix, BSD, Sun Solaris, HP-UX, and AIX. An agent is available to transfer logs from Microsoft Windows hosts to the central CI Logger server.
The CI Logger application can sort the incoming log messages based on their content and various parameters like the source host, application, and priority. Directories, files, and database tables can be created dynamically using macros. Complex filtering using regular expressions and Boolean operators offers almost unlimited flexibility to forward only the important log messages to the selected destinations.
The CI Logger application can segment log messages to named fields or columns, and also modify the values of these fields.
The CI Logger application can operate in both IPv4 and IPv6 network environments; it can receive and send messages to both types of networks.
