      I haven’t had time to work on this lately, and I know that eStreamer will go away, but I don’t know when

    Hi Todd, what´s the source of this information below?
    “but Cisco has planned to depreciate eStreamer in interactions over the next 24 months in favor of a syslog protocol.”
    Knowing that via syslog we’re not receiving (yet) a lot of important informations (such the event has been dropped or not) via syslog it is frustrating to know that we will develop under a solution that will be depreciated soon.
    Another perspective is the breadth of each one. eStreamer will populate more dashboard as bellow :
    1- Intrusion Detection, 2- Network Traffic. 3- Malware
    while syslog give you only Malware.

        Okay, here is what a very knowledgable Cisco Firepower within cisco person said:

        In the words of Mark Twain. News of eStreamer’s death was an exaggeration. That is, it’s still there and will likely be for years. Yes, new logging options are coming and are here with enhanced syslog in 6.3 and 6.4. But eStreamer remains an option.

          Thank´s Todd, I appreciate for sharing with us this updated information. It looks like we’ll have a transition time until syslog´s features will be good enough to supplant eStreamer.
