Advanced Connector Management
Connectors support a number of more advanced functions that are useful for monitoring and management in various deployment scenarios.
Real-time connection log output
Connectors can be configured to output real-time network connection logs to
stdout on the host machine. This allows log collection and monitoring without delay into a target SIEM or any custom system.
-> Enabling real-time connection logs
Connectors report metadata related to the Connector’s current state and the machine it’s running on. These details are exposed in the Admin console in the Connector management page.

Custom deployment metadata
Custom metdata may be added to Connectors at deployment time. This metadata is exposed in the Admin console in the Connector management page.
-> Add custom metadata to Connectors
Supporting unqualified domain names
If you wish to support unqualified domain names as Resources without requiring any device-level configuration, you may configure search domain(s) on the Connector host machine.
-> Supporting unqualified domain names
Connector health checks
Connectors automatically report process health when deployed as a container in Docker. However, some specialized deployment scenarios require checking Connector health directly.
