How PUSH and PULL Mechanism works in devices ?

Hi All,

I want to know more details about push/pull mechanism also how it works at connector level , Any detail oriented approach is Appreciated.

As of now i know that:-

1.Push :- connector requests devices for their logs (ex: windows connector)

2. Pull:- devices themselves sends logs to connector server(ex: syslog connector)

if Any docs. available in this community please give me the link or attachment for the same.

Thanks in Advance

Regards,

Can you elaborate more on what your request is for? You can look at the connector documentation to understand the mechanism used and how it works. Each connector document will give you an understanding of the mechanism used, how to configure it (where appropriate) and at the end of the document it will detail out any troubleshooting or relevant information.

Also, if you are looking for generic information, you can see the following link. Its a complete break down of almost all connectors and the ports and protocols used. That way you can work out what is in use and what is used.

Hi Deepak,

Push/Pull example with common connectors (one is not longer supported though):

  1. Push - Syslog connector - Here you configure the source to PUSH required logs to your log location (e.g. system where your syslog connector is installed).
  2. Pull - Windows Unified Connector (not recommended anymore, please use WEF instead) - Here you configure the connector to PULL from your desired log source systemes.

Best regards,
Matteo

Hi Matteo,

Small correction, WUC is still supported, and is one option when Windows is not an option for the connector host, however it is correct that there are now better alternatives to the WUC connector.

This page is a good resource as overview to see current support on various connectors: - Despite the generic title, this shows a full list of supported connectors, and links to each of the guides.

Thanks and best regards,

Lar
