How does Corner Bowl Event Log Manager do it?

Once harvested, log entries are saved to either a local or offsite log repository. Event Log Manager provides you with 6 different methods to centralize your log entries including SQLite, MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Elasiticsearch, CosmosDB and our own binary flat-file system.

SQLite
  • The world's most popular
  • Embedded RDBMS
  • No configuration required
MySQL
  • The world's most popular
  • Open source RDBMS
Microsoft SQL Server
  • Already have it?
  • The fastest RDBMS solution
  • Optimized batch inserts
Elasticsearch
  • Really fast and free!
  • Open source NoSQL
  • Uses a combination of WMI, Windows Shares, FTP/SSH and FTP/S to tail and download security, system and application log files from any platform.
  • Optionally, installs as an agent to reliably centralize Event Logs 12x faster than native Windows APIs while eliminating the requirement of running as a Domain Administrator!
  • Starts a Windows Syslog Server to receive, monitor and centralize hardware logs.
  • Eliminates the need to open ports on Work From Home (WFH) user networks by proxying through your own Azure Relay Hybrid Connection.
