Big Trouble for the CS-MARS

Currently, I have some trouble in CS-MARS, and hope anyone can give me some suggestion.

Recently, we upgrade the IDS from McAfee 4.x -> 5.x.  However, it was not on the support list of the CS-MARS.

The way to solve it was to create a new custom device in the CS-MARS 6.x.  However, there are over 4000 event types need to be associated for the devices.

Therefore, does any easy way to do it?

Thanks for any recommandation.

  There is no easy/automated method to add those 4,000 custom events to CS-MARS.  It may be possible to lower the number by creating broad matching criteria to summarize multiple different McAfee events into a single CS-MARS event.  You may also want to consider creating event parsers for only those McAfee events that are deemed most critical to your environment.
