Streaming Log View??
Is there a way to stream the logs in near real time within Security Analytics? I've been asked a few times over the past months if there's a view within SA to see the logs coming in that way. I've been on this product for a long time and I've never seen anything like that....I think the closes way would entail constantly refreshing the Events view. Does anyone have insight to this or have an operable workaround?
While you can't do this in the GUI, you can do this using NwConsole on the command line. Connect to your concentrator:
sdk open nw://user:password@conc_ip:50005
[root@RSAANZSCSA ~]# NwConsole

you can do some filtering also, for example
sdk tailLogs where "device.type='cacheflowelff'"
