New Free Tool – SolarWinds Event Log Forwarder For Windows

I am happy to introduce our latest free tool, Event Log Forwarder for Windows.  If you own an Orion family product or Kiwi Syslog, you may already be familiar with this tool, as we previously offered this as a free add-on or application you had access to as a customer.  Based on feedback from our customers and how much people love this tool we decided to make it free to all.

Many folks have dozens, if not hundreds of Windows Servers.  Trying to monitor the Windows Event Logs for specific errors, warnings, etc. is a pain point to ensure the servers and apps on it are running well.  Many folks may be running a Syslog server (like Orion SAM/NPM or  Kiwi Syslog) for gathering Syslog messages from your network equipment as an example or have a log management solution (like Log & Event Manager) for centralizing and analyzing all of your logs.  Event Log Forwarder for Windows helps these folks and is a lightweight app or agent you install on Windows machines which you care about looking for specific events.

A very basic example is failed login attempts to a Windows Server.  Someone mistypes a password and you get one or two here and there, no biggie.  However, if you see a spike and consistent pattern of failed login attempts, you are going to want to dig a bit deeper.
