TCP (Transmission Control Protocol)

What is TCP?


TCP is a communication protocol computers use to transmit data over the network. It provides ordered and error-checked delivery of a stream of octets (bytes) between applications and is considered a reliable protocol.

In the world of NXLog

TCP is one of the many network protocols NXLog supports. You can receive and send logs via TCP with the im_tcp and om_tcp modules, respectively. In the context of log collection, TCP is most likely to be used when transferring log records in your local network between computers or sending it to your locally hosted SIEM or log analytics solution.
