Additional information

The Insight Pack includes support for ingesting and performing metadata searches against the Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) log file records. By default BIND logs messages to the /var/log/messages file using the Syslog utility.

Notes:

  • BIND is widely used on Linux and UNIX platforms and uses the Syslog utility as a default logging mechanism.
  • This insight pack does not support BIND for Windows Environment. Depending on customer requirement, the Insight Pack can be modified to support BIND for Windows Environment.
  • The Syslog Insight Pack processes the Syslogs.
