New Features

App Store

LogZilla v6.14 includes a major update which now offers an App Store allowing users to add rules, dashboards and triggers at the click on a button.

The new app store is available in the UI under the Settings menu.

In this initial release, we have added apps for the following types:

  • Cisco ASA
  • Cisco Firepower
  • Cisco Meraki
  • Cisco route/switch
  • Cisco WLC
  • Microsoft Windows
  • Palo Alto
  • Watchguard

Future releases will include most, if not all, of the rules currently located in the Packages and Rules directories on GitHub.

AWS Kinesis Firehose Receiver

Customers may now send their Firehose data streams using http(s) to the LogZilla API using the /firehose URL.

E.g.: http://logzilla.mycompany.com/firehose

LUA-based rules

The LogZilla rules engine now supports LUA

Lua is a powerful, efficient, lightweight, embeddable scripting language supporting procedural programming, object-oriented programming, functional programming, data-driven programming, and data description.

The addition of LUA increases LogZilla's rule parsing performance by a factor of 10 (it was already fast, but now it's faster) and also adds much more flexibility to data manipulation in real-time.

Docker Volume Locations

Most of LogZilla's configuration files are now stored on the host OS at /etc/logzilla providing much easier access to power-users.

/etc/logzilla/
├── apps
├── forwarder.d
├── nginx
├── rules
│   ├── enabled
│   ├── system
│   └── user
├── sec
├── syslog-ng
└── telegraf
