Anomaly detection Engine for Linux Logs (ADE)

Priming ADE - upload

upload is a bash script which invokes the correct Java class after setting up the environment needed. upload parses the log and loads the information into the JDBC compliant database for use by verify and train.


Use upload to initialize the ADE database. upload can process Linux logs in RFC 3164 or RFC 5424 format. The logs can be in either files stored in the file system or in “stdin”.
