Secure System Logging
Alliance Log Agent for IBM i (AS/400)
Meet compliance regulations by collecting security system logs and transmitting to a log collection server or any Security Information & Event Management (SIEM) solution.
Automatically collect and transmit system security events
Format security events into an open systems log format, and securely transmit them to a log server for consolidation with the security events from other servers in the Enterprise. (IBM Power Systems i, IBM System z Mainframe, Windows, Linux and UNIX).
Convert IBM i system logs to common syslog formats
Logs can be collected from the System i security journal QAUDJRN, system operator message queue, and system history file QHST. Log entries are converted from the internal IBM format to either syslog format (RFC3164) or Common Event Format (CEF). Converted entries are then transmitted to a central log server or SIEM product for log collection, analysis, and alert management.
High performance event handling
Alliance Log Agent can process more than 800 log entries per second. This means that you can process the large number of events that are generated when System i security levels are at the highest settings.
