Configuring SYSLOG / Event Log on a Windows Device
Netmon’s complete Network Monitoring Solution can also be used as a centralized SYSLOG and Windows Event Log Server where you can quickly look through many Servers, Workstations or other Network devices’ SYSLOG and Event Log information without having to log into each individual device to see the same information.
Furthermore, with Netmon, you can create and generate email alerts based on any string of text pattern found within a specific event log, allowing you to be notified when that event occurs. This becomes very valuable if you know that a certain issue is recurring on a device and would like to catch it the next time it happens or if you simply want to be alerted when there are any issues on your network devices, including of course Windows Servers and workstations.
Unlike SYSLOG, Microsoft uses a different standard called Windows Event Logs. In order to import Windows Event Logs we have to install an agent on the Windows Server / Workstation in question which then will be pointed to your Netmon.
