access logs from bluecoat proxy to windows user-id agent

Trying to get bluecoat proxy to send its access logs to windows user-id agent. configured custom log on bluecoat in the following format

 

PAN Source=$(c-ip) Username=$(cs-username) Action=$(s-action)

 

On user-id agent side I am seeing server receiving syslog messages in the format specified

 

PAN Source=x.x.x.x Username=usernamexxx Action=TCP_HIT

PAN Source=x.x.x.x Username=usernamexxx Action=TUNNELED

...

 

User-ID agent is confiured with parse filter using Field

Event String: PAN

Username Prefix: Username=

Username Delimeter: \s

Address Prefix: Source=

Address Delimeter: \s

 

In the UaDebug keep seeing this error

 

[Error  592]: Syslog msg len read error

 

Anyone run into the same issue?

 

What am I doing wrong?

Re: access logs from bluecoat proxy to windows user-id agent

Can you instruct the BlueCoat to separate the fields with a comma or semi-colon?  Then change the setting on the PA to match the delimiter:

 

Username Delimeter: ,
Address Delimeter: ,

 

I think the \s is used for regex matching whereas the field match is an exact match and the PA was trying to match \s exactly.

Re: access logs from bluecoat proxy to windows user-id agent

Thank you rmonvon. No result :(

I see in verbose output that it is processing syslog, but then it shows error at the end.

 

For example first message in a syslog would be

 

PFW Source=some ip,Username=johns,Action=TCP_HIT

I will try to make a single message shorter

Re: access logs from bluecoat proxy to windows user-id agent

Can you take a screenshot of the syslog field settings on the PA and post it here?

 

Also, do you have a syslog server like Kiwi syslog server that you can point the BlueCoat to?  We want to confirm the exact syslog output that is being forwarded.

I don't have kiwi, but I have wireshark running on windows box where user-id agent is installed and I am seeing in wireshark something like below

Re: access logs from bluecoat proxy to windows user-id agent

{edit]

There is no comma after the IP address, and we specify the address delimiter has a comma.  Can you add another syslog field after the IP address to get the comma into the syslog message?

 

Other than that, I can't see anything wrong with your setup.  The syslog messages match against the fields & delimiters.  I would check the agent itself.  Restart the agent & maybe re-install agent.  Or just install another version of the agent on another server as a test.   Open a support case & have it diagnose is another option.

 

Thanks.

I did create a support case, but it appears they are scratching their head too.

 

I think it may have something to with amount of data bluecoat is trying to send. It does not send syslog messages as individual messages, rather many of them at once.

Re: access logs from bluecoat proxy to windows user-id agent

Humm, that is odd.  Any chance you can try the onbox agent on the PA or spinning a new agent on another Win server?  Or try a different release 6.x or 7.x agent?
