prelude-manager - Collects and normalize events.


prelude-manager [options]


Prelude Manager is a high-availability server which can collect, filter, relay, reverse- relay, normalize and store events. Events can come from registered analyzers and/or man‐ agers. The common usage is to store nomalized events into a database, thus this can be extended to store information in plain text or xml files.
