Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2 or higher


LogRhythm System Monitor Agents for Windows require the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2 or higher. 

  • Before upgrading your System Monitor Agent, confirm that .NET Framework 4.7.2 or higher is installed.

  • For information on determining which .NET version is installed, see Determine which .NET Framework versions are installed - .NET Framework .

  • If necessary, install .NET Framework 4.7.2 or higher and reboot your system. Because of the required reboot, we recommend that you perform this installation during off-peak hours.

New Features

LogRhythm SIEM version 7.17 contains various new features that make it easier to integrate your System Monitors and Open Collectors through the use of JSON parsing and policy builder.

For a full rundown of these new features, please refer to the LogRhythm SIEM 7.17 Release Notes.

Deprecated Features

LogRhythm has deprecated Check Point collection via OPSEC LEA in favor of the newer Check Point Log Exporter. Support for OPSEC LEA was removed starting with LogRhythm System Monitor Collector version and results in an error in the scsm.log file if this collection method is used. Customers who need to use OPSEC LEA for collection should not upgrade agents past System Monitor release.  For information on how to configure Check Point Log exporter, see Syslog - Check Point Log Exporter device configuration guide.
