The objectives of this class will be to first, write and modify Collector plug ins using the Sentinel SDK v2011.1r1 in an Eclipse environment and second is to write new and modify existing reports found in Sentinel 7 and Sentinel Log Manager. Sentinel Collector plug-ins are used to process incoming data from event and data sources, and to transform that data into data objects usable by Sentinel. This class will take the user through a series of exercises designed to teach the APIs and concepts necessary to accomplish these tasks. Sentinel also provides a comprehensive embedded reporting engine based on Jasper. The type of data available for reporting varies by platform, with Sentinel Log Manager primarily focusing on event data only, and Sentinel 7 providing additional contextual data such as asset and identity information. Using the same set of APIs, this class will use Eclispe to compile Javascript into Collectors and reports. Pre-requisite: This class requires a knowledge of scripting languages - some programming experience will be helpful. This class also requires experience with Sentinel. Experience with Eclispe will be an advantage but not necessary.

Audience Summary:

The audience for this course includes partners, employees and companies needing to modify the parsing logic of the Sentinel collector. Those who wish to modify Sentinel reporting or are curious as to the inner workings of the Sentinel publish channel should also attend. Students should be developers or other network personnel with an advanced understanding of the Sentinel structure.
