For Oracle and Print Server logs, once you have added Oracle and Print Server to EventLog Analyzer, select + Oracle or + Print Server from the Actions drop-down list and provide the ‘host name’ where these applications are running.

The canned reports available are top N reports, user activity reports, trend reports, detailed application reports, and detailed host reports. The top N reports lists in descending order, the hosts with most number of user accessed, users with most number of logins, users with most number of interactive logins, hosts based on event severity, and processes based on event severity.
The Compliance tab displays canned compliance reports for various regulatory compliance acts like PCI-DSS, FISMA, HIPAA, SOX, and GLBA. The relevant IT audit sections of the acts are covered by each report in detail. You can modify the existing canned compliance reports to suit specific requirements or create (+ Add) a new compliance report, to meet other IT compliance mandates like ISO 27001/2, etc.
The Search tab provides two options to search the raw logs: Basic Search or Advanced Search. The search result is displayed in the lower half of the page and the final search result can be saved as a report (in PDF or CSV format) and can also be scheduled to generate at pre-defined intervals and automatically mailed to a set of configured users. Use ‘Basic’ search if you are interested in manually constructing the search query. Here you can use phrase search, Boolean search, grouped search, wild-card search, etc. to build your search query. Use ‘Advanced’ search to interactively build complex search queries easily with field value pairs and relational operators. The fields can be grouped with boolean operators.
New fields can be extracted from the search result and regular expression (regex) patterns can be constructed to easily identify, parse and index these fields in new logs received by EventLog Analyzer.
This section allows users to create alert profiles to notify you or your team about threshold violations or network anomalies or user activities or compliance violations. The Alerts tab displays all the alert profiles, alerts generated and provides options to disable, modify or delete any existing alert profile.
