ON-DEMAND WEBINAR: Collect logs from your macOS computers centrally to increase security

We are happy to share the recording of our latest webinar focusing on the importance of log aggregation and its implementation in environments running several Mac computers. Centralized logging from across a fleet of macOS devices was virtually unachievable until now, but our dedicated modules can filter, normalize, and aggregate logs from multiple Macs into a single SIEM input stream. This solution is by far the most configurable and versatile log collection solution for macOS.

Controlling resource usage

NXLog is designed to collect and process logs as fast as possible. A side-effect of this may be high resource usage when there are many events to be processed. Operating system level tools can be used to limit resource consumption by NXLog, however this will also introduce a delay in log processing.

This post provides some options on how you can set up control methods that prevent NXLog from consuming more than the designated amount of RAM and CPU cycles. Different approaches and tools apply according to your operating system.
