How to create a weekly report which covers database operations?

Hello all

I have installed universal forwarder on Databases and now want to create a weekly report which covers database operations, for example table deletion, database modifications etc. Do I need to install any app? Currently forwarders are configured only to collect windows events.

 

Regards

Hi @I29851 

Universal forwarders would not fetch the database operations  there are two ways 

1) use DB connect APP if you have a heavy forwarder install on it configure the parameters  and get the data into splunk  try the steps in this video

or the documentation

2) export the Database logs to file and then read the data using UF
