Easy, lets me know about problems before they get worse. I have used this software for many years . Basically, I get a consolidated report every morning with event log errors and warnings from all my servers. I filter out informational events and many of the "noise" events that are inconsequential. I get a separate report of login anomalies. Very helpful to keep a close eye on the pulse of the server environment. Anytime I have had to contact Cornerbowl they were prompt and able to assist.

What else does Corner Bowl Windows Syslog Server include?

Powerful Syslog Viewer
  • Watch Syslogs in real-time
  • Create complex filters from messages
  • Page, search, pause, resume and clear the viewer
  • Copy multiple entries to the clipboard and paste into an email
Automatic Log Entry Retention Policy

Syslogs typically generate massive amounts of data which can easily fill a server's disk ultimately bringing down the server. Managing consolidated Syslogs is simplified with our automatic Syslog entry retention policy. Out of the box Windows Syslog Server automatically removes and optionally archive messages to an archive database freeing up disk space.

Frequency Rules

Windows Syslog Server support frequency rules that enable you to get notified when a specific message occurs multiple times within a period of time or does not occur within a period of time. For example:

  • Get notified when an error occurs 3 times within 5 minutes.
  • Get notified when an expected daily message has not been received.
Maintenance Window Support

If you have scheduled maintenance windows which may cause real-time Syslog Monitors to product false triggers you can configure your monitors to shut down or, if using frequency rules, suspend alerting while continuing to apply Syslog entries to your frequency rules.

Licensing

Windows Syslog Server is sold in node packs. Each unique IP address or hostname that is monitored, scanned or managed by the software is a node.

Windows Syslog Server can be installed on a single host or up to as many hosts as nodes purchased.

After you purchase a license, you have the option through this website or your reseller to upgrade your existing license with more nodes.

Once you have purchased a license, a license key will be emailed to you. If you purchase through a reseller, a claim link will be emailed to you enabling you to retrieve your key from this website. Once you have your key you will register online through the software's management console. If you are installing this software on an Air-Gapped network, you will generate license key files through this website where you will also find detailed instructions on how to apply your Air-Gapped key files.
