Syslog Server

Syslog monitoring

Many vendors provide a vast amount of data regarding their activity and metrics. However, these systems are dimensioned to provide their main service efficiently. Because of this, reporting and analytics are usually the weak spots of many IT solutions.

For this reason, more and more companies are switching from default reporting to smart analytics and observability. The goal is to have a single pane view with all the data from the different devices and systems of the network. Firewalls and other devices are exporting data in Syslog format.

This leads to several challenges: there is a need to collect, store, process, and analyze all this data. Furthermore, the different vendors of the network provide different types of logs, in different formats.

Syslog collector

Thanks to the smart data broker, Viewtilog works as a Syslog collector. Not only it collects the data: it can integrate, store and analyze Syslog and Syslog-ng, from any vendor. This includes firewalls, WiFi, load balancers, DNS servers, etc. (Fortinet, Checkpoint, Paloalto, Cisco ASA, F5, etc.)

On top of this, Syslog & Syslog-ng information and reports can be correlated with other data sources. Viewtinet can ingest and analyze all the different data sources of your network. 

Viewtinet allows defining the time that the logs are kept. It can also configure aggregations to gain speed with observability.

Syslog server logger & analyzer,
with drill-down and dynamic dashboards

Analytics and logger solutions are sometimes seen as complex technologies that require high expertise to exploit. On the contrary, Viewtinet provides an intuitive reporting tool: Viewtisight. Not only you can benefit from the out-of-the-box dashboards, but also create new customized ones with few clicks.

Create charts with an editor, select the data source, the metrics, dimension, and filters with few clicks. No complex query language is needed. Additionally, you can drill-down in each of the fields of the charts for further analysis.

What is more, you can create interactive buttons to filter charts according to a specific origin or destination IP, subnet, port, protocol, etc.

Syslog server analyzer
alarms and thresholds

Gain proactivity by setting automatic alarms. Receive notifications or integrate them with third parties. In every report and dashboard, you can easily set the thresholds to see when any metric is exceeding the normal values.

Syslog server,
end to end

Forget about heavy integrations and neverending projects. Viewtinet makes the data ingestion for you. All the data integration is included in the product license.

Extraction, transformation, load, normalization, storage, data analytics, alarms, multitenancy, etc. Everything under the same product. A complete end-to-end solution that goes from data extraction up to the analytics layer.

Syslog server,
required products and licenses

Viewtinet has a simple licensing model. Normally, Viewtinet proposes a perpetual license with an annual support renewable contract. However, if you prefer a monthly subscription this is also an available option.

As per every project of Viewtinet, the Viewtisight license is required. In addition, Viewtilog is also needed to ingest, transform, and load the Syslog data. Viewtilog depends on the number of data sources and the daily ingested volume of data.
