Here is the situation that I am sure many of you have had so i want some input and advice. I have about 200 servers and we are currently not doing any sort of event monitoring but I want to. Remoting on to each server is impossible if I want to get other work done too. I would like to know of some event log software that will read all events and alert me. I have a demo of GFI LanGaurd S.E.L.M. which is a good product but it is built more to recognize security intrusions. I know that I can set rules in it but that would take forever to enter every event that could happen. I want to know about any critical error to catch issues before they cause downtime so I want to know all events that are happening.
Is there a product that I can get that will allow me to have a central view of all servers and list how many critical or warning events for the day and then I can look into what the problem may be? If they are common I can just clear them.
Mostly all Windows 2003 Server sp1
