There appears to be some confusion on Log Insight’s support of multiline messages that I would like to clear up. The title gives it away, but I would like to discuss the details!
In order to send events from a Windows device to a remote syslog server like Log Insight, you need a syslog agent. Windows does not natively support syslog. The good news is that several syslog agents for Windows exist. I would like to cover my considerations and recommendations for a syslog agent on Windows. UPDATE: […]
In order to send events from a Linux device to a remote syslog server like Log Insight, you need a syslog agent. Most Linux operating systems ship with a syslog agent and if one is not available, one can be easily installed. The two most common syslog agents used on Linux systems today are rsyslog […]

Now that you know all about the Log Insight 3.0 agent parsers, it is time for a quiz! Read on to learn more.
In my opinion, the coolest new feature in Log Insight 3.0 is agent parsers. In this post I will discuss what they are and why they are important.
Log Insight 3.0 agents support SSL for both the cfapi and syslog protocols. In this post, I will discuss how to configure the agents to properly communicate over SSL.
In addition to typical bug fixing, the Log Insight 3.0 agents come with a variety of new features and a couple of important changes. In this post, I will highlight what is new.

This ingestion API can be used by anyone, but is leveraged by default by the Log Insight agent available for Windows as of 2.0 and Linux as of 2.5. The ingestion API is powerful because it provides functionality beyond what the syslog […]
