Windows Syslog Server Video Overview
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.

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.
For example, a 100 node license would enable an IT professional to install the software on 3 servers with one installation monitoring 50 servers and the other two installations monitoring 25 workstations each for a total of 100 nodes.
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.
