how to add the filterout option on software logger sending logs to Logger

Jump to solution

Hi ,

I have a scenario where in I need to filterout the events, where in we have a software smart connector installed on Windows platform whose destination of sending the logs is Logger.

Question I have is

1. How to add the filterout condition with the above scenario?

>> Option I thought was to add the filterout value in agent.properties... I am not sure whether its the rightway or not.

Please suggest me the ways I can add the filterout condition when software smartconnectors send logs Logger.

I did following settings to add the cache, filterout setting and aggregation settings

run the runagentsetup.bat file from following location: i.e

<Connector Home>\current\bin: arcsight runagentsetup

Modify Connector >> I want to Add/remove/modify destinations >> Select Logger Destinations >> Modify Destination Settings >> Filters >> Add the required filters under "Filter Out" option.

The filter out option is not done via agent.properties. However, the settings are captured in a xml file available under connector home\current\user\agent path.

The filter out option on connector can be done via below option:

run the runagentsetup.bat file from following location:

Connector Home\current\bin:

Modify Connector ==> Add. modify or Remove destinations==> Select Logger Destinations ==> Modify Destination Settings==> Filters==> Add the required filters under "Filter Out" option.
