What is a protocol or network protocol?


A network protocol is a set of rules defining how to format and exchange data over a computer network. It allows different devices to communicate with each other regardless of their underlying software and hardware differences. For example, some of the most used network protocols are TCP/IP, HTTPS, and SMTP.

In the world of NXLog

As NXLog is a network-based tool, network protocols play a crucial role in its operation. NXLog supports all the necessary network protocols for collecting and forwarding logs. Furthermore, NXLog endorses a set of Industrial network protocols too. Besides its many protocol-specific modules that NXLog uses for transferring log data, NXLog’s specialized im_pcap module enables the collection of network traffic information based on protocols.
