Centralized Linux Log Management, Monitoring and Log Analyzer Software Tool

How to Install the Corner Bowl Server Manager Agent on RHEL Video

Linux Log Consolidation

  • Consolidate Linux logs by centrally saving and backing up log entries to Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL or SQLite.
  • Use regular expressions to parse attribute value pairs to their native data types then save to your RDBMS for internal and external analysis (e.g. integer, decimal and date/time).
  • Use our Log Entry Retention Policy Template to automatically delete old log entries no longer required for compliance and auditing.

Linux Log File Archiving

  • Centrally archive, zip, password protect, encrypt and digitally sign log files in their native format.
  • Automatically remove archived log files once they reach a specific age, such as, 1 year.
Online Documentation

Linux Log Entry Retention Policy

  • Configure how long to retain log entries in the log databases, for example, archive entries older than 30 days then remove archived entries older than 1 year.
  • Schedule and manually remove log entries no longer required for analysis or compliance, for example, delete informational log entries older than 90 days.
  • Generate summary reports detailing the log entry retention metadata, for example, the data range and number of entries in each log database table.
Online Documentation

Linux Log Monitoring

  • Automatically detect and apply IPS remediation actions, such as, running a PowerShell Command to block a IP actively involved in a cyber-attack.
  • Use regular expressions to parse attribute value pairs to their native data types, for example, integer, decimal and date/time.
  • Create Complex Filter Criteria to parse and filter any data typed attribute value pair.
  • Apply correlation and frequency rules, for example, get notified when a user logs onto a Linux server then fails to logoff.
Online Documentation

Linux Log Reporting

  • Generate security event reports to gain insight on events such as user logons, account management and security group management changes.
  • Customize report layout, log entry columns, logos, colors, spacing and font sizes.
  • Create and customize SIEM Reports that cross multiple log types, such as Windows Linux Logs, Linux Entra ID Logs and Red Hat Logs.
Online Documentation

Linux Log Analyzer

  • Page through large log files, search, highlight, view frequencies, mark entries and export result sets.
  • Group and sort log entries using complex regular expression driven attribute value search criteria.
Online Documentation

Linux Log Filters

  • Generate filters from real-time and consolidated log viewers.
  • Use regular expression driven filter criteria to monitor value found in any log entry.
  • Create complex programming style filters from log entries that include recursive groups, logical operands, categories, and regular expression driven values.

Linux Log Entry Correlation, IDS and IPS

  • Group log entries by column values then trigger alerts based on number of log entries in each group.
  • Implement IDS and IPS remediation responses to active cyber-attacks.

Why do you need a Linux Log Management Software Tool?

As an Information Systems Security Manager (ISSM), using a Linux Log Management tool on your network offers several key benefits:

  1. Security Monitoring and Incident Response: Audit logs provide critical information about network activity. By archiving these security audit logs, you can monitor for potential security threats, anomalies, and unauthorized access attempts. In the event of a security incident, these event security logs are invaluable for understanding what happened and how to respond effectively.
  2. Compliance and Audit Trails: Many industries are subject to regulatory compliance standards such as, PCI/DSS, CMMC, NIST, JSIG, CJIS, ISO 27001 and GDPR, that require the retention and protection of security audit log data. A Linux Log Management tool helps in maintaining comprehensive records, ensuring that your organization meets these regulatory requirements.
  3. Performance and System Health Monitoring: Logs can reveal issues related to system performance and health. By analyzing these logs, you can proactively address potential problems before they escalate, ensuring the smooth operation of your IT infrastructure.
  4. Forensic Analysis and Historical Data: In the case of a breach or system failure, having historical log data is crucial for forensic analysis. It allows you to trace back the sequence of events, identify the root cause, and implement measures to prevent future occurrences.
  5. Efficient Data Management: Such tools usually offer features like automated log consolidation, parsing, and archiving. This automation saves time and resources, allowing you and your team to focus on more critical tasks.
  6. Customizable Alerts and Reports: Many Linux Log Management tools offer customizable alerts and reporting features. This means you can set up notifications for specific events or patterns, enabling a quicker response to potential issues.
  7. Centralized Linux Log Management: These tools typically allow for centralized management of audit logs from various sources across your network. This centralization makes it easier to manage and analyze data from a single, unified platform.
