“Logging syslog to text is still a huge pain point for many people. Although there are hundreds of solutions that collect, analyze and log syslog data, they are often very technical, difficult to setup and learn, and prohibitively expensive. With Fastvue Syslog, we set out to provide a simple way to start logging all your syslog data in one place, without paying a cent.”
Does Fastvue Syslog Analyze or Report on Syslog Data?
No. Fastvue Syslog simply collects syslog messages, logs them to text files, then zips and archives logs older than a certain number of days (30 by default). You can then import these text logs into a log analysis and reporting application such as WebSpy Vantage.
Does Fastvue Syslog collect data other than syslog?
No. Fastvue Syslog listens for syslog messages on the listening ports you specify (514 by default). It does not connect to databases, Windows event logs or APIs. It deals with syslog. Nothing more, nothing less.
Does Fastvue Syslog show log messages as they come in?
Fastvue Syslog shows statistics on the number of messages and the size of logs collected each day, but it does not provide a log viewer or filtering interface. Just open the text logs in your favorite text editor or ‘tail’ application.
How does Fastvue Syslog work?
Fastvue Syslog installs a Windows Service that listens for syslog messages and writes them to text. The service is configured via a web interface that runs on port 47279.The first time you access the web interface, you are presented with the options to set the log and archive paths, listening ports and a username/password for the web interface. You can also edit these options via the cog button in the top right corner of the application. Once configured, logs magically appear in your logging location.
