You set up and maintain the NetWitness Suite services run in the Services view. With the Services view, you can:
- Quickly search for and locate a specific service or type of service, such as Log Decoder or Warehouse Connector
- Use shortcuts to get to administration tasks
- Add, edit, and remove services
- Manage licensing and view the license status of a service (licensed or unlicensed)
- Sort Services by Name and Host
- Filter services by Type and by Name and Host
- Start, stop, and restart services
A service performs a unique function, such as collecting logs or archiving data. Each service runs on a dedicated port and is modeled as a plug-in to enable or disable, according to the function of the host. You must configure the following Core services first:
|Concentrator||Event Stream Analysis||Malware Analysis|
|Broker||Context Hub||Reporting Engine|
|Log Decoder||Incident Management||Warehouse Connector|
You must configure hosts and services to communicate with the network and each other so they can perform their functions such as storing or capturing data.
This workflow shows the procedures you complete to set up and maintain a service. Adding a service to a host is the first task in this workflow. The hosts with core services are set up out of the box. After that, you can set up additional services on hosts to enhance your NetWitness Suite deployment.
