For the sake of this discussion let's assume the new vendor can be parsed with the existing cisco_alternate rules found in /usr/local/omk/conf/EventParserRules.nmis. 

       Here is a list of current vendor's in the EventParserRules.nmis

    • winlogd
    • junos
    • cisco_compatible
    • nxlog
    • JuniperSyslog
    • HuwaeiSylog

      If need additional parsers please open a support case, you will need a sample of the syslog in order to proceed

We need to tell opEvents which parser rules to use these parser rules on for the new device /usr/local/nmis8nmis9/logs/newVendor.log.  (or what log name that you entered in the rsyslog.conf for the new Device or new Vendor)

This is done by modifying /usr/local/omk/conf/opCommon.nmis. 

                    Find the 'opevents_logs section and add the 'cisco_alternate', '<nmis_logs>/newVendor' relationship.

                                       Just copy one of the examples:

                                               Add the following lines:

                                                         'cisco_alternate' => [ '<nmis_logs>/newVendor.log' ],

Code Block
### /usr/local/omk/conf/opCommon.nmis

    'opevents_logs' => {
      'cisco_alternate' => [
      'cisco_syslog' => [
      'nmis_eventlog' => [


Code Block
[root@opmantek ~]# service opeventsd restart
Restarting opevents daemon opeventsd                       [  OK  ]
[root@opmantek ~]# 

At this point you should be able to go to the Gui > Raw Logs  This will allow you to verified you see the logs coming in

Create an event action policy as described here: Event Actions and Escalation
