Learn more about log management

What are logs?

A log entry is like a "journal-of-record" for every event or transaction that takes place on a server, computer, or piece of hardware. Every system in your network generates some type of log file. Microsoft systems generate Windows Event Log files. UNIX-based servers and devices use the System Log (or Syslog) standard. Apache and IIS generate W3C/IIS log files.

What is log management? Why is it important?

Centralized log management is a key component of ensuring regulatory compliance. With it you can monitor, audit, and report on file access, unauthorized activity by users, policy changes, and other critical activities performed against files or folders containing proprietary or regulated personal data such as employee, patient or financial records. By leveraging log management functionality within WhatsUp Gold you can save time by troubleshooting log events or reviewing relevant logs within the same interface used for network monitoring, thus saving considerable time and effort.
