Upgrade from the Free Edition to Watch More Devices, Improve Archiving or React to Events
Kiwi Syslog Server is available in two editions: a Free Edition limited to 5 devices, and an unlimited Commercial Edition that adds monitoring, retention, automation and web administration functionality.
The Commercial Edition lets you listen to an unlimited number of devices and computers. It improves log organization by allowing you to split up your logs by device, functional role or message contents, and then helps you implement your log retention policy with automatic grandfathering and clean-up rules.
Messages can be viewed in real time through a GUI application or from anywhere using the Commercial Edition's web viewer. Custom message highlighting rules and DNS resolution of obscure IP addressed can also be applied to help you quickly find what you need in busy logs.
Messages can be forwarded to other syslog servers, to any ODBC database (e.g., SQL Server), to the Windows Event Log, to SNMP or to other email addresses. The Commercial Edition can even be configured to act like a "syslog proxy", forwarding messages with original source information spoofed into the forwarded messages.
The Commercial Edition allows you to set up filters to react to specific message content, specific types of messages, messages sent at specific times, or a number of similar messages, such as five alerts in a row. Actions taken in response to a matching filter include sending email notifications, playing sounds, running scripts and running executables. (Scripts and executables can implement almost any type of advanced filtering, forwarding or action imaginable.)
