Flat File Log Sources

LogRhythm currently provides configuration guides for about 20 flat file log sources, but the SIEM supports many more. 

Our goal is to provide a configuration guide for every device the SIEM supports. If your flat file log source is not included yet, rest assured that we are working on it. 

Flat file log sources cannot be moved from a Windows agent to a Linux agent (or vice versa) via the Move Log Sources Between Agents feature. Instead, retire the existing flat file log source and reconfigure it using the other agent.
