I am currently looking into ‘Centralised’ Event log management.
Our company policy states that ALL windows, Cisco and Apple server Event logs have to be checked each and every morning.
Basically, for a windows box, the Application and System logs have to be viewed manually for any warnings or errors that have cropped up since the day before. There are currently 50+ servers and growing.
This is a TEDIOUS process, but has saved our bacon in the past. I am looking to streamline it and was wondering if anyone had any experience of any systems that could assist us with this? (It takes a good couple of hours somedays)
I am looking for someway of running a daily report that would just tell us what Boxes had errors/ warnings etc. A sort of one-stop-shop for event logs.
