Manage Clients in LCE

To access the Clients page, in the top navigation bar, click Clients. The Clients page displays a table of authorized clients and clients requesting permission to communicate with the LCE server. This table is referred to throughout this documentation as the client table.

Caution: The LCE Client Manager Interactive Mode is deprecated. Clients should be managed using the Clients page.

The Clients page is used to perform the following tasks:

Additionally, the controls above the client table allow you to search the entries in the client table, apply filters, and show or hide table columns.

Client operations in LCE are performed using the client table that is displayed on this page. Certain operations can be performed on one or more clients simultaneously by selecting the check boxes in the rows corresponding to the clients with which you want to interact.

The following table lists the columns that appear on the Clients page, and provides a brief description of each. Only certain columns are visible by default.

Column Description

IP

The IP address of the LCE client host. If you have more than one client installed on a host, the same IP address will appear multiple times.

Name

The value in the name column will be one of the following, ordered by priority:

  • The name you have assigned.
  • The hostname of the LCE client host, if resolved by the LCE server.
  • Unknown, only if a name is not assigned, and the LCE server cannot resolve the hostname.

Type

The type of LCE client. For example, LCE Splunk or LCE Client.

OS

The operating system supported by the installed LCE client package.

Note: While it may correspond, this value does not reflect the operating system installed on the host.

Policy

The file name of the policy currently assigned to the LCE client.

Version

The version of the installed LCE client package.

Last Heartbeat

The last time the LCE server received a heartbeat from an authorized LCE client.

Tip: If you hover your cursor over this value, the exact timestamp appears.

Unauthorized clients do not send heartbeats. This can be used to identify LCE clients that are not reporting to the LCE server correctly.

Server

The IP address or hostname of the LCE server to which that LCE client is assigned. If the LCE client is installed on the same host as the LCE server, the IP addresses will be the same. By default, this column is not visible.

Authorized

Whether that LCE client is authorized to communicate with the LCE server. By default, this column is not visible.

Tip: This can be used to identify LCE clients that are not be reporting to the LCE server correctly.

Alive

Whether a heartbeat or log was last received within the 5 minute reporting period from that client. By default, this column is not visible.

Logs today

The number of events received from that client today, including heartbeats. By default, this column is not visible.

UUID

The UUID of the client, if the client version supports UUIDs. The UUID is used to identify unique instances of LCE clients. By default, this column is not visible.
