Syslog and Windows Event Log Collection

EventLog Analyzer collects event logs from distributed Windows devices or syslogs from distributed Linux and UNIX devices, Switches and Routers (Cisco). Event log reports are generated in real-time to display important system information across the network.

No agents/client software required for log collection

For event log collection, eventlog analyzer application does not require a separate agent to be installed on each machine from which logs are collected. Rather the agent that collects Windows event log and syslog messages is present as part of the EventLog Analyzer server itself. In this way, eventlog analyzer application performs event log collections task without introducing additional load on the devices.

Windows event log and Linux/Unix syslog collection

EventLog Analyzer collects events generated by Windows and UNIX machines without deploying an agent. Setting up EventLog Analyzer to collect and report on events from a server, is a simple process for both Windows and UNIX systems.

Cisco Switches and Routers log collection

EventLog Analyzer collects logs generated by Cisco Switches and Routers. Setting up the Cisco Switches and Routers to send the syslogs to EventLog Analyzer is simple.

Database Filters for logs noise reduction during event log collection

EventLog Analyzer lets you apply event filters on the collected event logs, before storing them in the database. With event filters, you can store only the necessary event logs in the database, making it easier to search for particular events, and optimizing the capacity of the database.

Automatically collect logs for the period, ELA Log Collector process is down

This critical log collection feature ensures that the logs are not lost even during the log collector process down time.

Alert notification for ELA Log Collector process goes down

EventLog Analyzer lets you to configure Email alert notification to user(s), in case Log Collector process of EventLog Analyzer goes down. Email alert can be configured to multiple Email IDs.

Device Groups

EventLog Analyzer lets you create device groups to collect and report on specific devices alone. This is useful when tracking event behavior and system performance for a select group of critical servers.

Advanced User Management

Create different users to access event logs and generate reports. While Admin users have access to all features, Guest users will only be able to generate reports and retrieve archived event logs.

Collect and analyze the logs you need from Windows and syslog devices.
