BMC Event Adapters parsers
A parser formats the data that is collected by one of the BMC Event Adapters, converts it into tokens (fields), and passes these tokens to the mapping process.
The SNMP Adapter, the BMC LogFile Adapter, and the Perl Windows EventLog Adapter use a dedicated parser engine. This engine cannot be replaced or modified. You do not need to specify the parser in the adapter definition.
The BMC Event IP Adapters can use any of three pluggable parsers, each of which parses the data in a different format. For each IP Adapter, you must specify a parser in the adapter definition in the mcxa.conf file.
