Syslog is a standard protocol for sending and receiving logging messages from network devices and computer applications. It is typically used for management systems and security auditing and since it is supported on wide variety of devices it is commonly used for integrating logging information from many different types of systems into a central repository. When collecting syslog events to central repository in large IT networks there are huge amount of syslog events that can be received from the network in that case there is a major need for syslog root cause correlation analysis between all collected events.
Lan-Secure Windows Syslog Monitor Server Daemon has the perfect solution to deal with large amount of syslog events using powerfull monitoring engine and proven correlation techniques. The easy to use software provides several syslog root cause correlation analysis reports that can correlate any amount of syslog messages to specific root cause event.
Host Correlation Report
The host correlation report provides correlation between specific host addresses. Using this report displays aggregation of all hosts addresses messages including the time, priority and text message of the events.
Message Correlation Report
The message correlation report provides correlation between specific textual messages. Using this report displays aggregation of all text messages that were sent including, time, priority and the host address of the events.
Priority Correlation Report
The priority correlation report provides correlation between specific message priorities. Using this report displays aggregation of all message priorities that were sent including time, host address and text message of the events.
Time and Date Correlation Report
The time and date correlation report provides correlation of specific time frame of currently collected events. Using this report displays aggregation of all events that were received in selected time and date including priority, host address and text message of the events.
Using the above correlation techniques can help network management administrators and IT networks analysts to deal with large amount of syslog events and figure out which host address has created specific root cause event. Collecting and analyzing syslog events regularly can alert about potential malfunctions before it can cause severe damage to the IT networks.
