Windows Event Log Management and Log Analysis versus Polling Solutions

“The versatility of the product went way beyond our expectations”

“Actionable information is the key, because often decisions need to be made in real-time as issues are transpiring. Goliath’s software is intuitive and makes it easier to access the information we need to see. It was also critical for Goliath Performance Monitor to coexist in our complex environment. Because Goliath can integrate with other management solutions, we were able to use Goliath’s single console to collect data from our environment and then send that information to Splunk for further analysis.” “

Overview & Cost

Filter, Analyze, Alert, Report, Archive

Goliath’s Proactive Windows Event Log Management and Log Analysis Tool enable you to:

Filter: Customize Windows event log collection on basis of type, log, event ID, description, source, or user.

Analyze: Consolidate the most important events from across all your servers into one centralized real time view.

Alert: Set notifications to take place as soon as a failure or fault occurs or a condition has been met. You can then simultaneously initiate automated remediation actions when coupled with the Goliath Performance Monitor.

Report: Run custom Historical Reports based on filtered and archived event logs.

Archive: Access your actual .evt and .evtx files for as long as you want. Our agent pulls the files, compresses them, and then stores them to a storage location for long term archive and retention.

What is the Cost?

The Windows Event Log Management and Log Analysis tool is agent-based and available for only $100.00 per agent. If you are purchasing the Goliath Performance Monitor, the Windows Event Log Management and Log Analysis capability is included with any of our performance monitoring agents. This means that if you deploy an agent to Citrix XenApp, Citrix XenDesktop, VMware vSphere or Citrix XenServer virtual machines, or a physical server, you automatically receive Windows Event Log Management and Log Analysis functionality at no additional cost.

Unique Value

The Value of Real-Time Windows Event Log Management and Log Analysis

Most Windows event log management and log analysis tools work on a “polling” basis. Due to a delay between polling periods, administrators must wait for the Windows event log files. This is especially challenging for two reasons:

Alert Delay: If a server crashes between polling periods and you have alerts based on Windows event logs, there will be a delay between the crash and the alert.

Lost Log Files: If you are using provisioning services for Citrix XenApp & XenDesktop and the server crashes between polling periods, you will lose the evidence reported prior to the crash because the logs are wiped when the server restarts. So, the most important Windows event logs—those that immediately precede a failure event—are lost, making root cause analysis on the failure challenging, if not impossible.

With Real-Time Windows Event Log Management and Log Analysis, alerts are in real time and you won’t lose any Windows event log files, so you will be alerted as a problem is occurring and have the ability to analyze fault or failure logs immediately after an event.

Event Log Management & Log Analysis Functionality

  • Filter and alert for known conditions without having to comb through the logs yourself to reduce the amount of time between when a problem occurs and when the root cause is found
  • Search for conditions and consolidate critical events taking place on multiple servers into a single view to save time and reduce the effort needed to review server logs
  • Alert on known conditions automatically so you are aware as soon as an event or failure occurs within your environment
  • Leverage out-of-the-box monitoring rules for common problems and conditions such as Active Directory, Applications, Windows, and common applications like Microsoft Exchange, SQL, SharePoint, Citrix, Backup Software, VMware, and more.
  • Eliminate lost log files with real-time Windows event log collection and archiving so you can still determine the root cause even after logs roll over
  • View the exact Windows event logs that triggered an event on a single server or on multiple servers all in a single screen to speed up troubleshooting and remediation times
  • Compress and archive Windows event logs to efficiently store logs long term
  • Produce historical reports on archived event logs to fulfill compliance requirements
  • Report on events—including logons, account changes, server reboots, group policy modifications, and more—over a specific time period or even filter the reports down to identify a user’s activity, like domain administrator logins on the production servers

Syslog Management & Analysis

INCLUDED FREE WITH OUR PERFORMANCE MONITORING AGENT OR PURCHASED STANDALONE

We also provide a method of capturing and filtering syslog messages. The syslog server filters syslog messages in real-time by sender, facility, severity, and message content for easy rule creation and to quickly identify important messages and troubleshoot environmental issues more rapidly. This simple and easy to use solution allows IT staff to associate alert conditions with automated fix actions for known solutions or send a notification to bring attention to a developing condition. A wide range of systems and applications are supported, including Linux/Unix servers, routers, and switches.

Filter: Customize syslog collection on basis of type, log, event ID, description, source, or user.

Analyze: Consolidate the most important events from across all your servers into one centralized real time view.

Alert: Set notifications to take place as soon as a failure or error occurs or a customizable threshold has been reached and then simultaneously initiate automated remediation actions.

Report: Run custom Historical Reports based on filtered and archived syslogs.

Archive: Access your actual syslog files for as long as you want. Our agent pulls the files, compresses them, and then stores them to a storage location for long term archive and retention.

Windows Event Log Management & Log Analysis Agent 

The Intelligent Agent is our unique agent that allows our products to capture Windows Event Log data in real time.

What makes our Intelligent Agent unique is that it is easy to deploy and configure compared to other agents out there. It also gets in-depth metrics while using a very small amount of resources—about less than 0.1% CPU and <16 MB of memory utilization—and has a 1 MB footprint.
