Unix severity and error reports

Unix severity and error reports

A single Unix system is capable of producing over a hundred thousand syslogs in a single day. An organization with a network of Unix systems generates millions of syslogs in less than a week. Auditing these logs is quite a daunting task. With millions of logs, what information should you look for? 

One of the simplest, but most effective ways to obtain meaningful insights from your syslogs is to sort them based on their severity level. Another simple method is to look for error logs, a useful indicator of how well a device is performing. Using an automated tool like EventLog Analyzer is the best way to quickly sort and review these syslog messages.

Report features in EventLog Analyzer

EventLog Analyzer automatically collects syslogs from your Unix devices and generates predefined reports for varying levels of analysis. A few of EventLog Analyzer's key reporting features include:

  • Automatic, real-time log collection; collected logs are sorted into individual reports for each severity level.
  • Graph and table formats for each report.
  • Report filters to sort information by device and user.
  • Calendar widget to adjust the time range for reports.
  • Built-in search feature within each report.
  • Click-based drill down feature to view raw log information.

Unix severity reports

The severity reports are the most basic but useful set of reports provided. With neatly organized, easy to work with data, you can quickly interpret the severity data and gain insights into your Unix network. For instance, a device that had a spike in warning messages in the previous week may indicate an issue that arose within that same time frame.

Unix error reports

EventLog Analyzer generates reports for several common error logs created by Unix devices. These reports are useful in identifying which devices are causing the most errors, and what kind of errors they're generating. Noteworthy error reports include:

  • Unix mail server error reports: These reports highlight the errors raised by the Unix mail server application, such as mail rejections.
  • Network-related error reports: These reports display errors that occur when connecting Unix devices over a network, such as a bad ISP error or a reverse lookup error.

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.

  • 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.
