    Event Log Consolidatior

    geekcoco

      I installed Event Log Consolidator last week.  It worked great for 5 days. It then kept shutting down saying it encountered an error, windows was checking for a solution. When I started the service, all my servers (3) had dissappeared.  I uninstalled the program, restarted my workstation, installed, and kept getting the same error.  Any idea what is going on with this?  Great program when it works.

          Can you provide some more environmental details?

          What operating system did you install it onto?

          What operating systems are running on your monitored servers?

              I installed on a Dell Vostro i5 3rd gen , 8GB, Samsung SSD 128GB W7 Pro  Servers, two 2K8 R2 standard, and one 2K3 standard

                  Is that a Windows 7 x64 installation, or an x86 (32-bit) installation?

                   

                  The reason I ask goes to the question of memory management. From a previous conversation in this forum, the application stores all data in memory. By default it reads 30 days of history, and this may be a significant amount of memory consumption depending on the specific target servers and the level of activity on those servers. (It may even be too much for a 32-bit operating system.)

                   

                  You can disable the historical collection of event data. In the EventLogConsolidator.exe.config file and change this value to False and then restart the application.

                   

                  <setting name="IsHistoryEnabled" serializeAs="String">

                      <value>True</value>

                  </setting>

                   

                  I would suggest trying that as a diagnostic step, and see if that eliminates the crash.

                   

                  The loss of the server configuration information is a function of the crash itself, as the configuration does not get saved.

                      64bit.   Sorry about that.

                        I will give that a try.  I noticed it was hanging on loading historical data.  Thank you!

                          Thank you!! That worked.

                            Hi Lawrence:

                             

                             

                             

                            I just had this happen.  The Event Log Consolidator just crashed.  This is the event viewer log.

                             

                            I was only running at 3.79GB, not the full 8GB.  Any ideas why?
