Configure VA Collectors

Configure VA Collectors

Once the Virtual Appliance Collector has been added to the Lumu Portal, it is time to configure the VA Collector to send data to Lumu.

If you are interested in getting started with Virtual Appliance Collector, access our documentation.

Refresh the VA

After creating a VA collector, go to the Lumu Virtual Appliance and refresh the VA collectors settings by running the following command:

lumu-appliance collectors refresh

Configure each VA collector you created, having the option to choose generic or pre-configured templates, depending on the device types you use on your infrastructure.

If the device type your company uses is not on the list, you should choose the generic option and configure it accordingly. If you need to adjust the VA collector configuration file to match your server configurations, contact Lumu support for assistance.

After having a VA collector created and configured adjust your device’s settings (Proxy servers, DNS servers, etc) in order to send the logs to the Lumu VA. These are some technologies that we documented:
