There are occasions when you want to analyze log files that are in protobuf (Protocol Buffer) format. You can configure a Log Decoder with a Log Collector service to accept logs in protobuf (Protocol Buffer) format.

To import a log file to a Log Decoder:

  1. Go to ADMIN > Services.
  2. Select a Log Decoder with a Log Collector service in the Service list, and select  Actions menu  > View > Explore.
    The Explore view for the Log Decoder -Log Collector is displayed.
  3. Navigate to event-processors/logdecoder/destinations/logdecoder/consumer/processors/
    tcpconnector/config

    Your screen should look similar to the following.
  4. For the send-protobuf field, select false, and change the value to true.
  5. Navigate to event-processors/logdecoder/destinations/logdecoder/consumer/processors/tcpconnector/
    config/connector/channel/tcp
    and change the port value to 50202.
  6. Navigate to event-processors/logdecoder/destinations/logdecoder/consumer/processors/tcpconnector/
    config/connector/event
    and change the following parameters:
    • Clear the delimiter field
    • Change format to %text%
