Log Analytics Agent

Firstly, thank you thank you thank you for all the hard work you do on IPFire.

Have you considered bundling the Microsoft Monitoring Agent aka Log Analytics Agent as a pak package? I’d love to get my logs into Log Analytics. I’ve previously done this using an intermediary Syslog Server but would be great to install the agent directly.

I’d be happy to learn how to make a pak if you need someone to take ownership.


Welcome to the IPFire Community :smiley:

Yes, you can build a package and install it as a local add-on for your system. The wiki has information on how to do this.


After building and installing it as a local add-on and having proved it works you could also decide to create and submit a patch to the IPFire developer community where, if accepted, it would become part of the distributions add-ons.


Good luck and ask if you come across problems.
