Log Processing and Reporting


IDPS alerts generated through the Crystal Eye’s IDPS engine are saved in the form of indexes or report files and are stored in the Crystal Eye XDR. The Log Processing and Reporting application is used to manage these indexes and report files to create backup for further references.

The Log Processing and Reporting app can be controlled from four sections, namely, Size Limit section, Index Listing section, and Local Restored Indexes section.

The Index Size limit section helps in setting limits on how much Giga Bytes (GB) or Mega Bytes (MB) worth of index data can be stored in the Local Storage of the Crystal Eye XDR appliance. The application also provides insights into the Current Index Space Usage and the Restored Indexes Space Usage.

The Index Listing section provides details about the current indexes stored at the local storage of the Crystal Eye XDR appliance.

The Local Restored Indexes section provides details about the indexes that are restored from the external storage.

Note: All index files or the IDPS alert files that are stored in Crystal Eye is automatically retrieved as and when they are required.

The Index Size Limit is used to specify the limit of the files backup in terms of the space occupied by these files. If the index file size (IDPS alerts file size) exceeds the limit, the files are removed. However, the removed files get restored automatically as and when IDPS alert reports are generated.
