Sentinel Connectors - Flat files, ODBC, IBMi

Copper Contributor

Hi All,


I am considering rolling-out Sentinel some time in the future and I am exploring what data types it can ingest. I am particularly looking for if it ingest/how it can ingest from 

- Flat file logs 

- Can it connect to a database and ingest from it(ODBC)

- How it could ingest from IBMi/iseries


Thanks in advance for your input

  • For databases, in case your database is on-prem rather than a cloud service, I think that the best option would be Logstash. It might also be a good alternative for files.
  • For IBM, it seems that iSeries supports CEF (see here). Also, zSecure supports CEF as outlined in what's new for zSecure V2.3.0 

@CliveWatson  Thanks for that, it will help answer some of the questions!

Thanks ofer_shezaf that is helpfull.
