How does Corner Bowl Windows Syslog Server do it?

Windows Syslog Server starts TCP and UDP Syslog Servers to receive messages, monitor and centralize syslogs from devices such as switches, routers and firewalls. Once harvested, log entries are saved to either a local or offsite log repository. Windows Syslog Server provides you with 5 different methods to centralize your log entries including MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, elasiticsearch and CosmosDB. Don't worry, out-of-the-box Windows Syslog Server saves data to its own flat file system format getting you up and running without any required 3rd party integration.

What else does Corner Bowl Windows Syslog Server include?

Powerful Syslog Viewer
  • Watch Syslogs in real-time
  • Create complex filters from messages

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.
