Tom Endean recently published a review of Log & Event Manager (LEM) Sys Admins - Tom Endean.PNG


It is a comprehensive look at LEM, from installation to utilization.  The review includes details on the real time analysis and nDepth search features of LEM.  It has a couple of fun examples of LEM in action with Active Response:


  • Showing LEM catching a user who is playing an unauthorized game at work.  LEM terminates the game and scolds the user in an alert window on the offending machine.
  • Showing LEM notifying Tom Solarwinds via email that a user has been added to the Domain Admins group.


Check it out, it is well-written and entertaining, with a dash of British Humor.  It's also a great intro to LEM.
