Consolidation

EventSentry collects and consolidates a wealth of information from your network in the EventSentry database, visualizing everything from event log to performance information in an easy to search reporting interface.

The web reports allow you to easily search for a pattern of events across your network, whether on servers, workstations or on network infrastructure devices. The query interface is extremely flexible and allows for both regular queries as well as statistical information about events. The new reporting feature allows you to create categorized reports that can be exported to CSV or used as a source for RSS feeds.

The web interface also allows you to view disk space, performance and environment monitoring (optionally) trends by using graphical charts and disk space reports to quickly visualize large amounts of collected information. Nearly all information that EventSentry collects can be stored in the central database, including compliance tracking information, software / hardware inventory, file checksum status and much more.

EventSentry also ships with a database import utility that can be used to import event log backup files into the database either manually or on a scheduled basis (command-line options are supported) if real-time monitoring is not desirable or possible for any reason. You can also use this utility to add event log backup files to the EventSentry database that were created before you started using EventSentry for real-time monitoring.

Protection

Event Log Consolidation also gives you an added layer of protection in case event logs on the devices themselves should ever become unusable due to tampering or corruption.

EventSentry is one of the few event log management suites available that uses an open database format and supports multiple databases, including Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL and Microsoft Access. The web reports are open-source and require IIS 5 or later.

Back in Time

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could go back in time after a critical server crashed (blue screen of death - BSOD) or became otherwise unavailable? By consolidating event log, process, disk space and other information in a central database, you can see exactly what happened before the server became unavailable - using only a web browser. This can help you save a tremendous amount of time when troubleshooting a server that will no longer boot or is otherwise experiencing problems. With EventSentry, you can view information such as:

     
  • The last errors or warnings logged to the Application and System event log
  •  
  • The last Audit Success or Failures logged
  •  
  • The last processes that were created or exited
  •  
  • The most recent service status changes - was a service or driver added that caused problems?
  •  
  • How much disk space was available - how were the disks partitioned?
  •  
  • Who was logged on at the time the server crashed?
  •  
  • and much more.
