How EventLog Analyzer simplifies log searches
Log data can be massive even in small organizations. Many of these logs might just be routine messages that don’t concern you, but others contain data that is critical to your network’s security. You want your security information and event management solution to provide efficient mechanisms to search through this log data. This is particularly helpful for network troubleshooting and the backtracking of security attacks.
To search for specific logs, you could type a search query such as:
USERNAME = “John” AND EVENTID = “4672” AND SEVERITY = “success”
However, typing out queries like this every time you have to search for something is neither an effective nor efficient way to go about searching logs. Search queries become more complex as additional search criteria are added. Moreover, you must be able to view all the data pertaining to a particular field in a single window to track events effectively. Say, for instance, you need to look at all hosts accessed by a particular user at a single glance.
EventLog Analyzer has a smarter search option, which allows you to intuitively create a complex search query in a jiffy.
