Log Capturing and Event Correlation log analysis Lab

For the final demonstration in our Log Capturing and Event Correlation lab series we discuss log analysis as a follow up to the syslog-ng lab demonstration. We discuss at length the configuration file of the syslog config file, RSYSLOG-CONF.HTML using the Linux deployment of syslog. We discuss and analyze in depth the configuration setting options, and go further to actually view some of the configuration command structure and syntax.  You’ll come away having learned how the auth, sys, cron, kern, mail and other log files are set up, why they different, where and if some overlap, and what functions operate unilaterally and cohesively.
