This topic introduces features in the Services System view using Decoders (Network Decoder and Log Decoder) as an example. See the appropriate configuration guides for other services (for example, the RSA NetWitness Platform Broker and Concentrator Configuration Guide) for details on their respective (Admin) > Services > System views.
A Log Decoder is a special type of Decoder, and is configured and managed in a similar way to a Network Decoder. Therefore, most of the information in this section refers to both types of Decoders. Differences for Log Decoders are noted. For more information on Decoders, see the Decoder Configuration Guide.
