When a service is first added to NetWitness Platform, default values for the system configuration parameters are in effect. In most cases, the default values for compression, statistics update interval, and number of threads in the thread pool are set at a good point for optimal system performance. You do not need to edit these setting unless an RSA Customer Support technician advises you to change them.

Default System Configuration Parameters for a Decoder 

One parameter that you may want to change for your environment is the SSL setting, which by default is not enabled. When enabled, the security of data transmission is managed by encrypting information and providing authentication with SSL certificates.

To edit system configuration parameters for a Decoder or Log Decoder:

  1. Go to (Admin) > Services.
  2. Select a Decoder or Log Decoder service, and select The actions menu > View > Config.
    The Services Config view for the service is displayed with the General tab open.
    Service Config view > General tab for a Decoder
  3. Under System Configuration, click in a field that you want to edit (Compression, Port, SSL FIPS Mode, SSL Port, Stat Update Intervals, or Threads). Type a new value.
  4. When finished editing, click Apply.
    The settings become effective immediately.
