Event Forwarding to Syslog-ng Server

Jump to solution

We are planning to get all the Logs/Data from SIEM to further apply analytical stuff on them (hadoop). We want to import all the data from SIEM and dump them to hadoop for processing The first phase would be getting all the logs/data from SIEM and dump them to Hadoop. We are told that the way to do this is by configuring the Log management to use Hadoop as a backend storage (NFS), but we already did this and we cannot pursue since Log management uses only 1 storage backend and cannot forward any data to other storage. (I am not quite sure about this) Second would be using the Event Forwarding capabilities of ESM. Well the question here would be. Does Mcafee supports to forward data to Syslog-ng server? Is this only the way to get data from SIEM? (Please help) Is there any integrations between hadoop? (Any vendor) Any inputs will be appreciated.

I think the best way to accomplish this would be to use Event Archiving on the Receiver. This will let you write all of the logs in their original format to a CIFS or NFS share where they can be imported into Hadoop.

If I do this Event Archiving, does Receiver then copy all its logs or does the receiver push all its data and will use NFS/CIFS as its storage?

Yes? Enabling Archiving will cause the Receiver to copy the logs to a NFS/CIFS mount in addition to it's normal function (parsing, normalizing and insert into local database).

Could this be done in near-real time?
