Analytic is a log collector. it collects logs from appliances and interprets them. Also, it provides lots of information about networks and security.
Traffic and application analysis,
Network, security analysis
Behavior anomaly detection
Also, it allows us to troubleshoot and determine the source of problems in the network.
I will install the Analytics according to the following topology.
Step 1: Assign IP address on northbound and southbound interfaces from CLI
sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
Step 2: Configure a static route on Analytics and ensure reachability to 10.0.0.0/8
192.168.200.31: It is the eth1 IP address of Controller
Step 3: Configure hostname in both Versa Director and Analytics
The northbound IP address of the Director is 192.168.252.129
The northbound IP address of Analytics is 192.168.252.132
Step 4: As I changed the hostname of Versa Director during the setup step, I have to generate a new self-signed certificate and register that certificate to the Versa Analytics certificate store. My director hostname; Director01
cd /opt/versa/vnms/scripts/ sudo -u versa ./vnms-certgen.sh --cn Director01 --overwrite --storepass versa123
Step 5: Restart the versa director services;
Step 6: I define the analytics information to Director
Step 7: Copy and install the certificate to the analytics node on Director
sudo -u versa ./vnms-cert-sync.sh --sync
Director pushes the certificate to analytics. I see the certificate is installed.
Step 8: Check the certificate on Analytics;
and I see all certificates on Analytics.
Step 9: Verify certificates on both director and analytics are correct. I check Director value and Remote value, both values are the same.
cd /opt/versa/vnms/scripts/ sudo -u versa ./vnms-cert-sync.sh -verify
Step 10: Configure Versa Analytics setup on Analytics:
I see the van setup is completed.
Step 11: open GUI
https://192.168.252.132:8443 This IP address is the northbound IP of Analytics
Step 12: Add the Hostname of Versa Director
After Registering, we will be able to access Analytics, directly from Director Tab
Check the configuration on the Analytics collector, there is no configuration on Analytics.
set log-collector-exporter local collectors analytics address 172.16.1.2 port 1234 transport tcpstorage directory /var/tmp/log format syslog
commit and check configuration ;
Thanks for Reading.
