Consolidate all your syslogs to SQL Server or MySQL, monitor entries and patterns, get alerted in real-time and relay messages to other syslog servers.
Corner Bowl Syslog Manager includes a self-contained Syslog monitoring Daemon/Server that can be used to consolidate Syslog messages from Unix and Linux computers as well as devices such as switches, routers and firewalls. Once received, syslog messages are optionally filtered then saved to Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle or to file.
Create and apply simple filters or complex regular expression driven filters that pick out messages of interest. Our real-time monitors support frequency rules that enable you to get notified when a specific error occurs multiple times over a period of time or does not occur within a period of time. For example:
Corner Bowl Syslog Manager offers a wide range of alerts and actions including:
Avoid getting spammed with alerts by configuring your real-time Syslog monitors to limit the number of alerts over time. For example, receive no more than 5 alerts per hour.
If you have scheduled maintenance windows you don't want to receive alerts during you can configure your real-time Syslog monitors to shutdown or, if using frequency rules, suspend alerting while continuing to apply Syslog entries to your frequency rules.
Managing consolidated Syslogs is simplified with our automatic Syslog message retention policy. Configure Corner Bowl Syslog Manager to automatically remove or archive messages to an alternate database. Once archived, backup your archive database and save to an off-site storage device.
Corner Bowl Syslog Server is a functional sub-set of Corner Bowl Server Manager and consists of three major components:
The Console is used to configure the syslog server, consolidaiton and real-time monitoring.
The Windows Service contains the syslog server, the real-time monitors and fires alerts and actions.
The Tray Icon is responsible for firing user interface dependent alerts (message box, sound, system tray popup, etc.) including application status.
