    • Chrome 8 and later

    Supported Logs and Data Sources

    EventLog Analyzer can collect, index, analyze, archive, search and report on logs from over hundreds of devices, platforms and services. To know the latest supported logs and data sources visit https://www.manageengine.com/eventlog/supported-data-sources.html


    Note :
    • With its Universal Log Parsing and Indexing (ULPI) technology, EventLog Analyzer can support any log and data source that is in human-readable format.
    • For analyzing logs from Windows NT machine, WMI core should be installed on the Windows NT machine.
    • Syslogs received from SNARE agents for Windows will be displayed as Windows devices.

    RAM Size and Disk Space Requirement Approximation

    The following table recommends the RAM size and disk space requirements of the machine in which the EventLog Analyzer server is installed. The RAM size and disk space requirements depend on the number of devices sending log information to EventLog Analyzer, and the number of log records received per second or the log data received per day by EventLog Analyzer. The below approximation is worked out for 100 devices and an average log record size of 350 bytes.

    Log Records Rate (or) Volume RAM Size Hard Disk Space Requirement Per Month to Archive Logs
    100/sec or 3 GB/day 1 GB 300 GB
    500/sec or 14 GB/day 2 GB 1440 GB
    1000/sec or 28 GB/day 4 GB 2880 GB

    Supported Databases


    Bundled with the product

    • PostgreSQL

    External Databases

    • Microsoft SQL 2012
    • Microsoft SQL 2014
    • Microsoft SQL 2016
    • Microsoft SQL 2017
    • Microsoft SQL 2019

    Recommended System Setup

    Apart from the System Requirements, the following setup would ensure optimal EventLog Analyzer performance:

    • Run EventLog Analyzer on a separate, dedicated PC or server. The software is resource-intensive, and a busy processor may cause problems while collecting event logs.
    • Use the PostgreSQL bundled with EventLog Analyzer that runs on port 33335. You need not start another separate instance of PostgreSQL.
    • As mentioned in the prerequisites, for better performance, you can modify the existing PostgreSQL parameters.
    • Enable Disc encryption for better security.
