System Requirements

EventLog Analyzer system requirements

This section lists the system requirements for installing and working with EventLog Analyzer (Distributed and Standalone editions).



  Low Flow
± 2000 syslogs / 300 winlogs
Normal flow
± 10000 syslogs / 1500 winlogs
High flow
± 20000 syslogs / 3000 winlogs
Processor cores 2 8 16
RAM 4 GB 8 GB 16 GB
Disk Throughput 6 MB/s 20 MB/s 38 MB/s
Disk space 300 GB 1.5 TB 3 TB
Network card capacity 1 Gb/s 1 Gb/s 10 Gb/s
CPU architecture 32/64 bit 64 bit 64 bit


  • Disk throughput refers to the MB/s (megabytes per second) that EventLog Analyzer requires to write on the disk, without negatively impacting performance.
  • The above mentioned values are approximate.

Operating systems

EventLog Analyzer can be installed on the following operating systems and versions:

  • Windows 7/8/10, and Windows Server 2003/2008/2008 R2/2012/2016
  • Linux: Red Hat 8.0/9.0, Mandrake/Mandriva, SUSE, Fedora, CentOS

Web browsers

EventLog Analyzer has been tested to support the following browsers and versions with at least a 1024x768 display resolution:

  • Internet Explorer 9 and later
  • Firefox 4 and later
  • Chrome 8 and later


EventLog Analyzer can use the following databases as its back-end database.

Bundled with the product

  • PostgreSQL

External databases

  • MS SQL 2005
  • MS SQL 2008
  • MS SQL 2012
  • MS SQL 2014

VM infrastructure

  • Allocate 100 percent RAM/CPU to the virtual machine running EventLog Analyzer. Sharing memory/CPU with other virtual machines on the same host may result in RAM/CPU starvation and may negatively impact EventLog Analyzer's performance.
  • Employ thick provisioning, as thin provisioning increases I/O latency.
  • Enabling VM snapshots is not recommended as the host duplicates data in multiple blocks by increasing reads and writes, resulting in increased IO latency and degraded performance.

Network-attached storage (NAS)

  • NAS drives are not recommended if their latency is higher than the local disk’s latency.
  • Check the disk's I/O latency before implementation, as disk quality is critical for EventLog Analyzer's performance.
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.

  • I love the alerts feature of the product. We are able to send immediate alerts based on pretty much anything we can think of. We send alerts when certain accounts login, or when groups are changed, etc. That has been very helpful. Also the automatic archive of the log files has been very helpful and has taken the worry out of keeping old logs. The “Ask Me” function is very nice as well. It is great to have some natural language queries built in where you can just click a button and get an answer.

  • 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.
