In continuing to run into headaches with an older version of Kiwi, I’m starting an investigation into other Syslog alternatives.  Syslog requirements: Something that is relatively inexpensive, doesn’t need to be Windows based, has a web interface.

 

Curious what everyone else is running or has had some experience with and what they liked.

 

Thanks.

-Aaron

Splunk Free is great if you generate less than 500 MB of logs per day. In our smaller environment, I run 4 instances of it (as virtual machines), one for each wireless controller that we have and one for all our switches. We are getting close to exceeding the limits, so sometime this year I will be looking for an alternative that can do more than 500 MB per day. Splunk it quite expensive to pay for once you outgrow the free version. Nathan Nathan P.

Syslog-NG writing to MySQL utilizing Cacti with the syslog plugin on the front-end. Takes a bit to get setup but provides a web interface with the only cost being VM resources and time. Only limits on the system are the VM (or hardware) you put behind it. ~Patrick

Plus one for Splunk -- that software is great but again ultra-expensive to actually buy.

Cheers,
Dave
