ProxyServerContainer is an application that receives logs from local applications and sends them to Devo, by opening a TCP and UDP port in the local direction (localhost).

The applications send the events to one of the ports and then the ProxiServerContainer handles the sending to Devo servers.

If the connection with Devo is not possible, the received events would be stored and re-sent when the connection is available.

ProxyServerContainer sends every 30 seconds a trail with the following information:

  • eventdate  - date when the event occurs
  • environment - the environment that the event is referring to (production, pre-production,etc...) 
  • eventProcessing
  • applications - name of the application's executable that it is executing for the tracking 
  • seq - identifier for each execution of ProxyServerContainer (an unique identifier) 


There are two versions of ProxyServerContainer:

  • ProxyServerContainer20 needs .NET Framework 2.0.
  • ProxyServerContainer needs .NET Frameworl 4.0.

ProxyServerContainer executes in Windows versions where .NET Framework 4 executes. 

At the moment, ProxyServerContainer has been tested in the following Windows versions:  

  • Windows XP SP3
