Additional LEM downloads for version 6.3

 

Overview

This article provides a list of additional software components available for Log & Event Manager (LEM) 6.3. 

Environment

  • LEM 6.3.n

Detail

After you install Log & Event Manager version 6.3.n, you may need to download and install additional software components for additional data collection and analysis.

LEM Desktop Console

The LEM console provides a browser-based method to monitor your LEM appliance. If your IT requirements restrict you from using a browser-based solution, you can install the LEM desktop console powered by Adobe AIR Runtime. This console enables you to monitor your LEM appliance without a web browser.  

Adobe® AIR® Runtime is required to run the LEM desktop console. If you are currently running Adobe AIR Runtime for another application, the download is not required. 

Agents

The LEM Agent collects data directly from the hosted operating system and transfers that data to the appliance for monitoring, notification, and response. After you deploy the agent on your monitored systems, you can enable your data sources by logging on to the LEM console and choosing Manage > Nodes.

Microsoft SQL Auditor

Microsoft® SQL Auditor enables you to audit the following database for changes and failed modification attempts on the following Microsoft SQL Server® databases:

  • SQL Server 2000
  • SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE)
  • SQL Server 2005
  • SQL Server 2005 Express
  • SQL Server 2008
  • SQL Server 2008 Release 2 (R2)
  • SQL Server 2014

Download and install SQL Auditor on your Microsoft SQL database server or a remote system running SQL Profiler.

LEM Reports Console

The LEM Reports Console converts your LEM database data into information you can use to troubleshoot and identify problems in your corporate network. Installed on a separate Windows server or workstation in a multiple location deployment, you can run over 200 standard and industry-specific reports that help you make informed decisions about your corporate enterprise.

Download and install Crystal Reports Runtime and LEM Reports if you want to run pre-configured security and compliance reports.

Both items are required to run LEM Reports. If you are currently running Crystal Reports Runtime on your system for another application, downloading and installing this component is not required.

LEM Connectors

LEM connectors are software components that convert raw events collected from a network device into normalized events. Connectors can reside on device agents or the LEM appliance.

Download and apply the LEM connector update package when SolarWinds updates a connector or when directed by Technical Support.

You can automatically update your connectors each day by enabling this option in the console at Manage > Appliances > Connectors Updates.
