Replicate Event Messages

You can specify multiple Destination Groups so that the event data is replicated to each group.

The following procedure explains how to replicate event data to multiple Local Collectors.

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Services.
  2. Select a Remote Collector.
  3. Click under Actions and select View > Config to display the Log Collection configuration parameter tabs.
  4. Select the Local Collectors tab, select Destinations in Select Configuration drop-down menu, and click in Destination Groups to display the Add Remote Destinations dialog.
  5. Set up the Destination Groups to facilitate replication.
    Newly added replication Destination Groups display in the Local Collector tab.

  2. In Services, select a Remote Collector.
  3. Click AdvcdExpandBtn.PNGunder Actions and select View > Config.
    The Service Config view is displayed with the Log Collector General tab open.

  6. Set up a separate Destination for each Local Collector and designate the protocols for which you want to push event messages to that Local Collector. The following examples shows the addition of two Destination Local Collectors (Destination1 and Destination2) for the CCheck PointFile, Netflow, ODBC, SDEE, SNMP, Syslog, and Windows collection protocols:
    1. Type the Destination Name.
    2. Type the Group Name. If you do not type a Group Name, the Destination Name is taken as the Group Name.
