The primary log searching and analysis user interface is provided by phpLogCon, an open source project brought to you by the developers of SyslogAppliance. We suggest to look at that project's online demo in order to get a good impression of what SyslogAppliance will offer. To do so, please access
If you have a VMWare environment at hand, no matter what it is, you can simply download SyslogAppliance, plug it into your VMWare and demo "the real thing". There is no need to configure anything, you need to log into the appliance once. It will tell you it's DHCP-assigned IP address. You point your browser to that address, you are ready to go. A really no-hassle setup, just like it should be with a plug and play appliance!
SyslogAppliance provides gathering of syslog messages from different devices. The data received can be searched, analyzed, graphed and being reported on. Windows event log support is available via the optional EventReporter component. The system is set up in multi-user mode where different users can have different defaults and permissions. SyslogAppliance includes tools that connect to online resources that enable you to do important lookups quickly and help solve problems seen in the logs quickly. SyslogAppliance comes preconfigured with rsyslog and phpLogCon, two top-notch logging applications. All of this is provided on top of a slim Linux operating system.
