To get data from remote XpoLog forwarders, configure an XpoLog Listener account:

  1. Go to Manager > Administration > Listeners. The Listeners management console opens.
  2. Add XpoLog account, for each account the following should be configured:
    1. Name: the name of the Listener account
    2. Description: the description of the Listener account
    3. Listening Node: the node in the cluster which will listen to the messages received from remote XpoLog instances/agents (appears only if a XpoLog cluster is deployed)
    4. Token: a unique token that is identified with this listener and must be included in the used URL when forwarding data to this account - the token ensures only permitted devices send data and also tags the sent data to the desired XpoLog listener in XpoLog
    5. Advanced Settings:

      General Information:
      Enabled: determine whether this account is enabled or not

      Dynamic Log Creation Configuration:

      Parent Folder: the parent folder which all logs from this listener will be place under in XpoLog Folders and Logs tree

      Collection Policy: the collection policy which will be associated to all logs from this listener (used mainly for storage location and data retention)

      Listener Data:
      Listener Data Location: the location which data will be stored to, by default XpoLog stores it in its data directory
      Indexing Node: the node in the cluster which will index the received Syslog messages (appears only if a XpoLog cluster is deployed)
      Indexing Interval: the frequency in which received Syslog  messages are indexed

  3. Save the account.
