Syslog Reports

Syslog Reports enable you to scan the consolidated log database for specific entries. This report is typically used by compliance and audit professionals while auditing domain controllers and stand-alone servers.

Syslog Reports use Regular Expressions to parse Syslog Entries, extract values, validate subject and target accounts in Active Directory (when applicable), then finally filter entries using Syslog Filters. This report is supported on all locales.
