Tax day got you down? Here's a free offering that ought to cheer you up: after a short hiatus an all-new Free Edition of our popular Kiwi Syslog Server will be returning next week!
As in previous releases, the Free Edition will allow you to collect syslog messages and SNMP traps from multiple devices. It can write the collected logs to disk, split by priority or time of day, or display them in one of up to ten different viewers. Message statistics will be available in the management console and may be sent in a summary email once a day. A source limit of five devices will be placed on the Free Edition, but these five sources can be of any type that sends syslog messages via UDP or TCP, or emits SNMP traps.
The Commercial Edition will be an unlimited edition that will add monitoring, retention, automation and web administration functionality. It will improve log organization by allowing you to split up your logs by device, functional role or message contents, and then will help you implement your log retention policy with automatic grandfathering and clean-up rules.
The link below will take you to the all-new Free Edition. This link will go live by 5:00 PM (CDT) on April 23, 2013.
