  1. Various event sources (which could be local or remote, for example the node could be a syslog-ng server receiving a variety of syslog-style events or a netflow collector using flow-tools) are saved locally on the filesystem so that
  2. Based on filtering criteria a subset of this information is added as events in a local database on the node which can be
