If we have choices what is reccomended data retrieval should we use

If we have multiple choices to choose between serveral "data retrieval", what should we use? If you have any idea could you please share with the rest of us?

In my case if you do not care that much about real-time or near real-time monitoring, file source seems to be easiest one among all type of data source.

On the other hand syslog suitable to near real-time needed. For low bandwidth link such as data source located in different geo-location, agent seem to be a good option.

Hi Parinya

There is no "best choice" for data retrieval, it really depends on the network, security policy, compliance or other requirements for your enterprise. We try to offer a broad range of possibilities so that all customers will be able to get data into the SIEM in a timely and secure manner.
