XpoLog may be configured to monitor incoming messages and decode the messages to be available in XpoLog over different protocols. XpoLog can listen to Syslog data (UDP or TCP) arriving from one or more source devices, HTTP/S arriving from one or more source device, data forwarded from XpoLog Agents and , Cisco routers and switches that support NetFlow and receive topics from Kafka server(s).

You can use XpoLog to receive data from these source devices for easy searching, reporting and alerting - XpoLog also provides several options to automatically split the incoming data and create a dedicated log per source device or a custom configuration (note that such changes in a listener configuration take place on incoming data from the change forward, and is not applied on already processed data).


NetFlow transport protocol:
Cisco routers and switches that provide the ability to collect IP network traffic as it enters or exits an interface. By analyzing the data provided by NetFlow, a network administrator can determine things such as the source and destination of traffic, class of service, and the causes of congestion.
Routers and switches that support NetFlow can collect IP traffic statistics on all interfaces where NetFlow is enabled, and later export those statistics as NetFlow records toward XpoLog as a NetFlow collector - for traffic analysis.
 XpoLog supports NetFlow versions 5 and 9.


Kafka servers provide stream of records, similar to a message queue or enterprise messaging systems. XpoLog supports analyzing topics received by the listener from multiple Kafka servers.   

Listeners Accounts Console:
Available under Manager > Administration > Listeners, the listeners accounts console presents all the configured listeners and their statuses and provides access to their configuration.
