This article outlines the procedures for configuring Websense Enterprise to send logs to your LEM appliance using SNMP, and configuring your LEM appliance to accept the logs and process them for storage and monitoring.

Requirements

  • Websense Enterprise - Corporate Edition v6.1 or later
  • Websense Client Policy Manager (CPM)
  • Websense Usage Monitor
  • Websense Master Database

Environment

  • All LEM versions
