KIWIOverview:

SolarWinds Kiwi Syslog Server is an affordable syslog management tool for network and systems engineers. It receives syslog messages and SNMP traps from network devices (routers, switches, firewalls, etc.), and Linux/Unix hosts. You can filter and view these messages based on time, hostname, severity, etc., and set up custom alerts. Kiwi Syslog Server has built-in actions to react appropriately to syslog messages. There are also log archival and clean-up features that help you comply with security policies.

Features:

Powerful and Robust Syslog Server
Kiwi Syslog Server listens to syslog messages and SNMP traps from network devices and Linux/ Unix hosts for comprehensive, network-wide log management. Kiwi Syslog Server is easy to install and use.

  • Supports unlimited number of devices for syslog collection
  • Designed to handle up to 2 million messages per hour
  • Supports log collection from both IPv4 and IPv6 devices

Centralized Syslog Monitoring
Kiwi Syslog Server includes a centralized, easy-to-use Web console to view, search, and filter syslog messages. The Web console provides up to 25 log display views that you can customize according to your filter criteria. You can generate graphs of syslog statistics over specific time periods.

Advanced Syslog Alerting
Kiwi Syslog Server’s intelligent alert functionality notifies you when the predefined criteria of a syslog is met based on time, type of syslog message, syslog source, etc. Send an email alert or instant message, play a sound, send a pager message or SMS, and more.

Built-in Actions to React to Syslog Messages
Kiwi Syslog Server includes a host of built-in actions to react to syslog messages including:

  • Trigger email notifications and reports
  • Run scripts or external programs
  • Log to a file, Windows event log, or database
  • Split written logs by device, IP, hostname, date, or other message/time variables
  • Forward syslog messages, SNMP traps (v1, v2, v3) to another host

Forward Windows Events to Kiwi Syslog Server
In addition to syslog messages and SNMP traps, Kiwi Syslog Server allows you to monitor Windows events. Using the free tool, Log Forwarder for Windows, you can forward Windows event logs to Kiwi Syslog Server as syslog messages. When Kiwi Syslog Server receives the syslog messages, you can perform log management actions on the Windows events.

Retain and Archive Logs
Kiwi Syslog Server helps you meet SOX, PCI-DSS, FISMA, and other regulations by allowing you to log syslog messages to disk, files, and ODBC-compliant databases. You can use the integrated scheduler to schedule and run automated archive and clean-up tasks. Then you can implement your log retention policy. Additionally, you can schedule log management actions, including compress, encrypt, move, rename, and delete.

Forward Syslog Messages and SNMP Traps
You can use Kiwi Syslog Server to forward syslog messages and SNMP traps to other syslog hosts in external network management systems and security information and event management (SIEM) systems.

Securely Transport Logs Over Any Network
Using the optional, free Kiwi Secure Tunnel, you can receive, compress, and securely transport syslog messages from distributed network devices and servers to your instance of Kiwi Syslog Server.

  • Network Performance Monitor (NPM): Let Kiwi Syslog Server act as the middle man in filtering out all the unwanted syslog messages from devices before they are being sent to the NPM’s primary/additional poller. Benefit from longer syslog retention capabilities using Kiwi Syslog Server.
