Why would someone want to Truncate old syslogs? Syslogs should be archived NOT truncated

Hi jeff.stewart

Any news about  numbers I will "take" 50%

  • Major Performance Improvements

Hello

Was the performance up by 50% on Kiwi Syslog Server 9.6.0?

There is a performance description in the following page:

https://support.solarwinds.com/Success_Center/Kiwi_Syslog_Server/Maximum_number_of_messages_for_Kiwi...

"The licensed version has been regularly tested to handle 400-600 messages per second while logging to file."

So, KSS 9.6.0 can handle 600-900 messages/s while logging to file?

I hope PM will come with your 900 messages/s

I love that Kiwi it's save me so much on the Orion platform

By filtering and forwarding the right stuff only til NPM.

Does anyone know if this will work with NPM 11.5 or it has to be 12.

rmurphy1313​ I believe the Kiwi Syslog program is independent of NPM/Core versions... I do not think one requires the other.

hale​ I agree, I would much prefer them to include a feature that archives older messages. Perhaps something similar to how they handle the hourly/daily/weekly/monthly/yearly stats in NPM. I would even go for an "unofficial" workaround, to get something like that setup. But you're definitely correct, I don't want to delete my records.

Thank you. I did find out on a call that I do not need to use Kiwi and it does require separate equipment.

thank you all for the info given.

You can use schedules to automatically archive your older log files. For more information, see "Create schedules to automate log archival and retention" in the Kiwi Syslog Server Getting Started Guide.

Also, the new feature doesn't truncate old syslog files. If you log messages to a database, the Log to Database action now includes an option to automatically remove older messages from the database.

How about a roadmap for a report writer of some kind? 

Morning All, Any thoughts one when you might add support for Windows Server 2019? Just looking down the roadmap to see where a common platform might sit.
