FrameFlow - Event Log Monitoring
Monitor Windows Event Logs on Multiple Systems
FrameFlow can monitor Windows event logs for critical events. With very flexible filtering it lets you watch for the records that you are specifically interested in and can help you to detect potential problems before they turn into big issues.
Windows event logs are full of all kinds of events. Some are important and others are informational and can be safely ignored. FrameFlow offers filters in its Windows Event Log event monitor so you can focus on the important ones and skip the others.
You can filter based on event IDs, event sources, or even by string values found in the event text. For all of the above cases you can choose to include only selected values or to exclude values that you want to skip.
Supports New Extended Event Logs
All Windows systems include the standard Application, Security and System event logs but Windows Server 2008 introduced extended event logs that are used extensively by Windows and increasingly by third party applications. FrameFlow includes full support for the new extended logs with all the same filtering options that are available for the standard ones.
Opportunities to Monitor 3rd Party Apps
FrameFlow's event log monitoring abilities come in handy when you need monitor other applications that form part of your IT infrastructure. Backup systems and hardware monitoring systems will write to the Windows event log for progress and critical events.
For example most backup systems will write an entry to the Application event log when a backup is completed and will use different event IDs to indicate a successful backup versus one with warnings or errors.
Also, system monitoring solutions like Dell OpenManage will write to the Windows event log for conditions like high motherboard temperatures or failed RAID drives. You can easily use FrameFlow's Windows Event Log event monitor to watch for these events and get alerted.
Integrated Archival to SQL Server - Auditing & Compliance
Our event monitor even includes the ability to automatically export matching event log records to a SQL Server database. It's a great way to implement archival and auditing for compliance with corporate security and data retention regulations.
