  • Is this a patch for version 4.3.3 which is 4.3.4 or is this the release notes for patch 4.3.3?  A little confused on this since it was just posted yesterday and 4.3.4 was release yesterday .
  • when there will be the possibility to set up a different retention period for different types of logs? like ids 2 mounth and firewal only 24 h ?

    there are some plans for upgrading the correation method, for example for negation rules or conditional rules?
  • We are running 4.3.4, and it appears to have a memory leak.

    Over a 24-36 hour period I have watched the memory usage increase, followed by swap usage increase, followed by server instability.

    Is this 4.3.3 a patch that I can apply, or is this already applied because I am running 4.3.4?
  • Hi Russ,

    This is Sandip.
    Is mango DB available in this release? and do we just need to configure it?

    Or do we need to install it manually?


  • The alienvault ossim 4.3 system contains mongodb database?
