Log Manager for Orion is designed to make it as simple as possible to collect log data as well as view, search, and alert on those logs, all for an affordable price. Being built on the SolarWinds Orion Platform, it seamlessly integrates with other SolarWinds products, like Network Performance Monitor and Server & Application Monitor, to provide IT pros with critical log data in line with other infrastructure and application performance data.
Log Manager for Orion® is a powerful log management tool that allows you to aggregate, search, and chart log data from within the Orion Platform. With real-time log collection, analysis and visualization, you gain out-of-the-box visibility into the performance and availability of your IT infrastructure.
Log Manager for Orion data can be accessed by clicking the Analyze Logs link on the Node Details page, or by selecting Log Viewer from the MyDashboards drop-down menu. This allows you to go from the detailed performance data that you get with Orion modules such as Network Performance Monitor, to the granular event details provided by syslog and trap messages.
The Log Viewer provides a view of the log data across all devices. The top displays an interactive histogram chart that helps visualize your log volume. Clicking on an event will provide the full Entry Details on the right side.
View historical logs by clicking the time range. Choose one of the preconfigured ranges or create your own custom range.
Filters are included out-of-the-box, so you can refine your log data with just a few clicks. Filters include log type, level, tags, node name, and IP address. With Network Performance Monitor integration, you can also apply filters based on information gathered by SNMP, including vendor and machine type.
Log Manager uses an advanced search capability to access aggregated event logs. Enter a search term to return logs associated with your defined search criteria. The histogram refreshes to present a graphical view of the number of logs processed during the designated time period.
Live Mode provides a real-time live stream of log data in your environment. The search box and filters can also be used in live mode, to refine your results, and to help identify issues quickly.
Log Manager Rules includes a number of preconfigured rules so you can configure your tags right out-of-the-box. The Create New Rules option—under Custom Rules—lets you create your own rules and add actions. Once you have named the rule, you can add conditions, such as firing for specific sources and log events. Log entry actions can be added in the next step, including tagging the event, running an external program, or flagging the event for discard.
If you receive hundreds—or even thousands—of logs every second, it can be difficult to isolate what's important. Log Manager lets you assign tags so you can identify important logs quickly. You can apply multiple tags to a single log, and even color code those tags to make it easier to focus on exactly what you want.
Orion alert integration lets you trigger an alert based on syslog or SNMP trap data, and create powerful alert actions such as running an external script, email notification, or ServiceNow® integration.
