    How do I backup my database?

    Below are the procedures for backing up data from PostgreSQL, MySQL and MS SQL databases.

    Note: Before starting the backup process, stop EventLog Analyzer service.


    Database backup procedures for PostgreSQL (For Build#8010 and above):

    Take a backup of the existing EventLog Analyzer PostgreSQL database by creating a ZIP file of the contents available in <EventLog_Analyzer_Home>/pgsql directory and save it as in <EventLog_Analyzer_Home> directory.


    Database backup procedure for MySQL:

    Take a backup of existing EventLog Analyzer MySQL database by creating a ZIP file for the contents of  <EventLog_Analyzer_Home>/mysql directory and save it as in <EventLog_Analyzer_Home> directory.

    Database backup procedure for MS SQL:

    Find the current location of the data and log file for the database  eventlog  by using the following commands

    use eventlog


    Detach the database using the following commands:

    use master
    sp_detach_db 'eventlog'


    Backup the data file and log file from the current location <MSSQL_Home>/data/eventlog.mdf and <MSSQL_Home>/data/eventlog_log.LDF to the new location <New_Location>/eventlog.mdf and <New_Location>/eventlog_log.LDF.

    Customer Speaks

    • Credit Union of Denver has been using EventLog Analyzer for more than four years for our internal user activity monitoring. EventLog Analyzer provides great value as a network forensic tool and for regulatory due diligence. This product can rapidly be scaled to meet our dynamic business needs.

    • The best thing, I like about the application, is the well structured GUI and the automated reports. This is a great help for network engineers to monitor all the devices in a single dashboard. The canned reports are a clever piece of work.

      Senior Network Engineer
    • EventLog Analyzer has been a good event log reporting and alerting solution for our information technology needs. It minimizes the amount of time we spent on filtering through event logs and provides almost near real-time notification of administratively defined alerts.

    • Windows Event logs and device Syslogs are a real time synopsis of what is happening on a computer or network. EventLog Analyzer is an economical, functional and easy-to-utilize tool that allows me to know what is going on in the network by pushing alerts and reports, both in real time and scheduled. It is a premium software Intrusion Detection System application.
