Log Sources for WinCollect Agents

A WinCollect agent can collect and forward events from the local system or remotely poll a number of Windows-based log sources and operating systems for their events.

You can add log sources that communicate through a WinCollect agent individually for remote polling. If the log sources contain similar configurations, you can simultaneously add multiple, or bulk add log sources. A change to an individually added log source updates only the individual log source. A change that you make to a group of log sources updates all of the log sources in the log source group.

You can add a local log source for local collection. You can create a log source manually, if it wasn't autocreated.


If your deployment has the same user name accounts on different domains, ensure that you configure domain information when you create the WinCollect log source.
