    Receive only Windows security log by default?

      Is it possible to set this as a default setting, or is it necessary to first get the agent reporting and then edit the node connector settings to stop the application and system logs?

          See if this will help achieve your objective (Tool is the old terminology for Connector)

            This looks promising, however for now at least I reverted to switching off the application and system logs per node.  I created a profile and stopped these connectors but the next node I added to the profile continued to pull them in.

             

            Does it perhaps take a couple of minutes for a profile to apply?  I must say I reverted using the profile after about 30 seconds I saw the second node still showing these logs as active.  I will however try again using two nodes that I know to be "less chatty".  I do wonder if the profile settings on apply to the options within each connector e.g. Alias, Output, nDepth Port etc.

             

            Lastly and this is probably my lack of understanding, I found that when editing a node from the Cog > Connectors option to stop these logs they were again active after a node reboot.  This time I've switched them off by double-clicking the node and used the On/Off switches under "Node: Connectors Applied" hopefully these will stick.
