"You have a storm of Syslog Messages in your Environment then try out Solarwinds Kiwi Syslog Server"

What do you like best?

Easy setup with multiple Actions for Notification is a nice thing.

What do you dislike?

Configuration is little complex when it comes to grouping of multiple rules.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your environment is bigger one which have thousands of devices (Network/Widnows or any other syslog enabled devices) then Solarwinds Kiwi Syslog Server is a nice a tool for you. It not only handles any amount of syslog messages. It also offers multiple actions that you can take on received syslog messages e.g. Send an Email, Forward Syslog Message, Write syslog in a Log File. But if you are looking for a solution where you want to integrate Syslog Messages with Third Party ITSM tool then you may have to struggle a little bit since you have to find a way of integration via Email or Logfile since there is no Write Syslog Messages in Event table option. So choose wisely.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Big Environments of Clients which depends on Syslog Messages from their end network devices for notifications like BGP Down, Media Gateway lost ISP connections.

"Small but useful utility with simple setup efforts"

What do you like best?

No. of actions that can be performed on Syslog Messages are nice and good in numbers. Some of them are Send Email Message, Forward Syslog Message, Color Coding etc.

What do you dislike?

Integration with Orion Platform is not available so this is one of the negative side of this tool. Also Events based on Syslog Messages Rule cannot be integrated with any other ticketing tool, only way is to send email alerts or integrate based on email action.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Solarwids Sylog Server is a nice tool if you have heavy Syslog Traffic coming from your infrastructure. Or if you very less Syslog Messages coming to your environment then you can use Orion Platform (NPM) itself. Also it provides you lot of actions that you can take based on the filter criteria. Its good to have Product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are bulk of Syslog Messages that we rely on, it was very difficult to have these syslog messages accommodated in Orion Platform but now we have isolated application for handling the same.

What Other Non-Relational Databases solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Great Tool"

What do you like best?

Kiwi SysLog is a great tool for monitoring servers and equipment. We just implemented Kiwi SysLog and it has saved us several dollars by find an issue before it arises. We have replaced about 5 SSD's that were about to fail. If we did not have Kiwi SysLog the SSD's would have failed and that would have put us in a bad situation.

What do you dislike?

Kiwi Syslog is a great tool but it does have a down side. This uses a lot of resources and is best to have its own server. That means there is another server that you have to build out and more licenses that you have to purchase. Other than that, there is not anything that I have found that would make me look for a replacement.

Recommendations to others considering the product

build your own server to host this software

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Kiwi Syslog Server is a great tool to use in your business!"

What do you like best?

Kiwi Syslog Server is very easy to install and setup. It is easy to customize and maintain also. It doesn't use too many resources on the host and has never given me any problems.

What do you dislike?

I wish the menus were easier to use and the documentation is not the most detailed for a beginning user. Support is very good and helped me deal with the setup questions I had so that wasn't a huge problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great product for the price.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Accumulating and analyzing syslog entries from many network devices. It's very helpful to have all of these in one location and to be able to have Kiwi sent alerts based on certain alarm conditions.

What do you like best?

Syslog can always be a burden, especially with problematic devices. Kiwi makes it simple to view your logs and maintain them with all the patches that we may need to add.

What do you dislike?

Out of all the tools available on the market, Kiwi Syslog really covers them all, nothing to dislike about a tool that does it job.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is most likely one of the easiest to use Syslog servers on the market. Highly recommended.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Kiwi helps us with realizing what devices are acting up and monitoring items as they come up. This helps my network and systems team stay ahead of patches and updates.
