Event Log Monitor

Howdy all,
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.

Thanks,
Mark

Mostly all Windows 2003 Server sp1

Hi Mark.

We are monitoring our ~30 Servers with ELM Log Manager from TNT Software. This product can do everything you describe above and additionally it receives syslog messages and SNMP traps from non-Windows devices (routers, WLAN access points and so on). They also have products which can do performance monitoring in addition to Event Log monitoring. I can highly recommend this software.

I am still evaluating the TNT software along with Event Sentry and Microsoft MOM. I will post what solution I went with when my eval period is completed which should be soon.

Thanks,

I tried the TNT software and my trial ran out so I will bug them for another. There is a lot of confuguration in order to monitor Routers and switches. At least a lotto learn if you never worked with MIB's from Cisco. I an also currently testing the IPmonitor software and I like how it is set up.

Thanks
