This topic describes the format and content of Log Collection Troubleshooting. NetWitness Suite informs you of Log Collector problems or potential problems in the following two ways.
- Log files.
- Health and Wellness Monitoring views.
If you have an issue with a particular event source collection protocol, you can review debug logs to investigate this issue. Each event source has a Debug parameter that you can enable (set parameter to On or Verbose) to capture these logs.
