queue management for event source server

Hello, I would like to know what means IN/OUT in the queue management of event source server. Could you explain me also how the event is processed between collector manager event source server, connector event sour, collectors...Or at least link to documentation.

Thanks

Hi David,

IN/OUT means messages IN/OUT. It does not directly equate to events, and can deviate and display higher/lower EPS stats than the collector itself will.


At a high level, there is one basic flow:

<place the events come from> -> Connector -> Collector -> routing engine -> Data storage.

There are really two types of connectors. Connectors with event source servers receive events over the network, and pass those on to the collector to process. Connectors that don't have event source servers are what I often call "query"/polling style connectors - they reach out to a resource and query it for information that can be retrieved and passed on to the collector.

Event sources represent what we're collecting from, whether it's a file or a network device sending syslog.

Connectors represent the connection between the event source and the collector. In the case of an event source server, the connector describes a link to the event source server that provided the data.

Some of this is described in our admin, and here is a link to the right area https://www.netiq.com/documentation/sentinel-81/admin/data/b164bthd.html - please feel free to comment and share discrepancies/gaps in the knowledge, our Information Development staff do monitor and take your comments seriously! The more detail and constructive suggests, the more helpful it is!

Thanks,
Brandon
