The NetWitness Platform Archiver is an appliance that enables long-term log archiving by indexing and compressing log data and sending it to Archiving storage. The Archiving storage is then optimized for long-term data retention and compliance reporting.
Archiver stores raw logs and log meta from Log Decoders for long-term retention and it uses Direct-Attached Capacity (DAC) for storage.
Ensure that you have:
- Installed the Archiver host in your network environment.
- Installed and configured Log Decoder version 11.2 in your network environment.
If you want to configure multiple Archiver or Concentrator services as a group and share the aggregation tasks between them, refer to Group Aggregation in the Deployment Guide.
This workflow illustrates the end-to-end installation and configuration process for an Archiver.
The following table describes the basic steps for configuring an Archiver.The tasks must be completed in the sequence they are given.
