Syslog Watcher is a central log management system that collects and stores log messages from various devices and software. Using a syslog server provides the benefits of centralized log management, improved security, and enhanced compliance.
Syslog Watcher allows you to view and analyze log messages from multiple devices in a single location rather than having to check the logs of each device. Using a syslog server reduces the time to identify patterns and trends, and troubleshoot issues.
With Syslog Watcher, you can more easily monitor security-related events and take appropriate action. For example, you can set up alerts to notify you when specific security-related log messages are generated.
Many regulatory standards, such as PCI DSS, require organizations to maintain and review log records regularly. Syslog Watcher can help you meet these requirements by providing a central location for storing and examining log messages.
Syslog Watcher supports the most modern transports for syslog protocol, from the straightforward Syslog over UDP (RFC5426) and Syslog over TCP (RFC6587) implementations to the secure syslog transmission over an encrypted TLS channel (RFC5425).
Support for dynamic syslog originators allows Syslog Watcher to correctly collect messages that are passed through a syslog-proxy or redirected by a syslog forwarder.
A central repository for event records simplifies system log analysis and speeds up network troubleshooting. Syslog Watcher's built-in syslog storage is optimized for a large number of collected syslog messages indexed by time, importance, and origin.
A synchronized repository archive provides the additional redundancy required for the reliability of the syslog storage. The syslog archive automatically compresses syslog messages, allowing more data to be stored.
A flexible filtering system with complex expressions allows you to use syslog viewers to find problems and determine their causes. Syslog viewers also support layout customization and colorization rules for better data visualization.
Advanced time interval controls, data pagination, and quick search are only some of the rich features of the syslog viewer.
Email alerts reacting to specific syslog messages allow the syslog server to notify you of important events on the network.
Syslog Watcher's multi-threaded 64-bit architecture is optimized for high loads. Our syslog server is able to receive up to 100,000 syslog messages per second.
The network subsystem does not limit the number of listening interfaces or the number of simultaneously connected syslog clients.
The all-new syslog storage structure guarantees unlimited storage size, optimal file organization, and consistent performance.
