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 6 different methods to centralize your log entries including SQLite, MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Elasiticsearch, CosmosDB and our own binary flat-file system.
- Bind to any port and Network Interface Card.
- Includes a built-in DNS cache enabling syslog messages originating from any platform to be centrally saved using their fully qualified hostnames.
- Optionally define syslog message delimiters such as CRLF, CR, LF or Null.
- Automatically cleans up idle syslog client connections.
What else does Corner Bowl Windows Syslog Server include?
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.
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.
