Extracted Fields

The following table lists the fields that are extracted, normalized under the ECS format, analyzed and indexed by the parser. It should be noted that infered fields are not listed.

Name Type Description

dhcpd.query keyword None
event.category keyword Event category. The second categorization field in the hierarchy.
event.kind keyword The kind of the event. The highest categorization field in the hierarchy.
event.outcome keyword The outcome of the event. The lowest level categorization field in the hierarchy.
event.type keyword Event type. The third categorization field in the hierarchy.
source.domain keyword The domain name of the source.

Configure

As of now, the main solution to collect ISC DHCP logs leverages the Rsyslog recipe. Please share your experiences with other recipes by editing this documentation.

Rsyslog

Please refer to the documentation of ISC DHPD to forward events to your rsyslog server. The reader can consult the Rsyslog Transport documentation to forward these logs to SEKOIA.IO.
