Documentation on Nitro Agent/Collector for Syslog Collection

Hello all,

I am looking to collect Syslog using the McAfee Nitro Agent instead of forwarding over UDP 514. Can someone please provide the updated documentation on how to correctly configure this as I have been unable to locate any written documentation on the subject within the last several years. (Plenty of documentation on deployment for Windows) Also, if anyone else has collected syslog in a similar fashion and has any gotchas or words of wisdom, I am all ears.

Re: Documentation on Nitro Agent/Collector for Syslog Collection

The SIEM Collector (formerly Nitro Agent) hasn't had an update in a while so older documentation is valid. I recommend this comprehensive video created by the SIEM PM. He starts configuring the agent at 18:24.

We're due for a new version of the agent with the release of 9.5.1.
