Receive and analyze Syslog messages
with PRTG 

Keeping an eye on system messages just got a whole lot easier: Network devices continuously send system messages via Syslog, messages which must be analyzed by administrators. The right monitoring tool is necessary to maintain an overview of this process. Only then can you promptly spot loopholes and fix errors.

PRTG has developed a Syslog sensor that receives Syslog messages from network devices and analyzes their contents As an administrator, you are free to choose the types of events for which you receive alerts. PRTG thereby ensures you do not overlook any important information.

With PRTG, everyone can work with peace of mind.

i Syslog stands for System Logging Protocol and is a standard protocol used to send system log or event messages to a specific server, called a syslog server. It is primarily used to collect various device logs from several different machines in a central location for monitoring and review. The protocol is enabled on most network equipment such as routers, switches, firewalls, and even some printers and scanners. In addition, syslog is available on Unix and Linux based systems and many web servers including Apache. Read more ...
