Check connector type

Jump to solution

Hello,

I am working on some connectors that i did not install. i know they are for firewall logs but not sure what type of connector was used during install. for syslog connector I'm not sure if it is daemon, file or pipe. is there any easy way to check what type of connector is installed?

Thanks.

Hello,

In the path '%connector_name%/current/user/agent' you have .xml file (or files).

If you'll open the file you'll see that the first line has a property called 'AgentType='. That's where you'll find what type your connector is.

Another option is to look at events coming from your connector and check the 'agentType' field.

Notice that these types are not always clearly readable and understood but you should be able to understand which connector you have.


Regards,

Or.
