As you all may recall, it's been 7 months since Kiwi Syslog v9.5 was posted (see Kiwi Syslog 9.5 is now Available! ). I am very much looking forward to a major release (i.e. v10). What would this new version contain? I have a few things in my wish-list...
I am sure that other Thwackers have many other items in their respective wish-list for Kiwi. I'd like to hear from you. And, of course, I'd like to hear from the Kiwi PM, to tell us what's in the Roadmap for the next Kiwi release. Have a great day, everyone!!!
You sure have alot of ides to that humbel tool...
I see kiwi as "sidekick" that help Orion.
We still are not happy with trap & syslog alerts in the Orion domain ( only half the planet ask for trap advance alert )
In my setup kiwi will keep do the trap "heavy lifting" for Orion that never was good in that area any how...
9.5 came in perfect timing I needed transparent forwarding to some traps...
I will sure like better integration with Orion some kind of action that will make Orion change the node status not only from up / down
It could be like API call from kiwi to Orion "please set that sub element in that node in warnning state"
Yeah, I know I am asking for a lot... And yet, dreams often come true for dreamers.
Note to Kiwi PM/Moderador --- I'd like to get your feedback as well... A road-map would be ideal, since we've had v9.5 for over 8 months...
I'd like to see:
More capacity is always welcome, a web console would be nice but not a priority for me.
I don't want Kiwi to be a SEIM tool like Splunk or Arcsight. It's a log receiver and archiving tool and should stay in that realm, the focus and relative simplicity makes it easy to manage.
I have to admit that your "wish-list" for Syslog Kiwi is definitely better than mine. I hope the PM/Moderator takes note of these exchanges and respond soon w/what they have planned.
Thanks and have a great day!!!
We could ask them if they are also hardening their Windows 2012 R2. I appreciate the response jeff.stewart
The good thing for SolarWinds is that kiwi is on the DISA approved list of software... now we just have to find a way to get it working with Windows2012R2. I'm not convinced it's the hardening causing the problem... but you never know. Now that others have reported the same problem I don't feel quite as frustrated.
