SolarWinds Introduces Its First Free Tool for Event Log Management

New Tool Streamlines the Organization of Event Logs and Correlates Issues From Multiple Windows Systems Direct From the Desktop

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Feb 15, 2012) - SolarWinds® (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, announced today the release of its first log and event management free tool -- SolarWinds Event Log Consolidator.

SolarWinds Event Log Consolidator offers near real-time evaluation of event logs, empowering users to respond proactively to Windows system issues. In one centralized location, users can easily monitor, consolidate, or dismiss event logs and correlate issues.

"Without SolarWinds Event Log Consolidator, users would need multiple remote desktop sessions open at once to even begin trying to monitor this much event log data, and with that, they still couldn't compare it," said Sanjay Castelino, SolarWinds' VP, Market Leader - Networking & SIEM Business. "SolarWinds' new free tool makes trouble-shooting event log data easy for IT Operations."

SolarWinds Event Log Consolidator highlights:

  • View, consolidate and dismiss event logs on multiple Windows systems
  • Compare event logs from multiple systems side-by-side
  • Define custom filters including logs by time period or specific servers
  • Set alerts to notify by popup in the OS system tray
  • Export key data to a .csv file
