WinLog software application captures and relays syslog messages (unmodified) sent by different network devices like routers, managed switches and hosts. These captured messages are logged into logfile and converted to easy readable format. From this log file you can filter out messages based on different criteria.
WinLog also can be used as a log reader/filter for raw syslog log files generated by WinLog itself. With strong log filtering capabilities of WinLog you can filter out messages form syslog log files on different criteria like date/time, priority, facility, severity, source of message and event mask.
Additionally it also provides live event log to syslog converter service (NTsyslog) for windows NT/2000/XP/2003 for monitoring windows events via syslog protocol.
If you want to monitor all windows servers in your network from one place where WinLog is installed you may need to install NTsyslog service separately on each server, you can downlod setup of NTsyslog from our download/demo section. NTsyslog is a freeware software and distributed under GNU GPL and you can use it as you want.
