Configure LEM Agents after they are installed

Updated: September 15, 2017

This topic documents LEM Agent configuration tasks.

After installation, the LEM Agent captures log information from sources such as Windows Event Logs, database logs, and local antivirus logs. Additionally, the LEM Agent allows LEM to take specific actions that you can define as rules. You can trigger actions manually from the LEM console using the Respond menu.
