Poll #7: What tools do you use for Windows Event Log collection?

My next fun logging poll is here - please vote! It is about tools for centralized collection of Windows Event Log from servers and other systems. One of the somewhat surprising discoveries from my previous poll was that few people look at Windows logs; this poll drills down into it.


UPDATE: just looked at the results collected so far, and I would like to say this: why - oh - why some people want to turn an honest research effort into a vendor war? Ye bastards, :-) you know who you are ...

Past logging polls and their analysis:

  • Poll #6 "Which Logs Do You LOOK At?" (analysis)
  • Poll #5 "What are your top challenges with logs?" (analysis)
  • Poll #4 "Who looks at logs in your organization?" (analysis)
  • Poll #3 "What do you do with Logs?" (analysis)
  • Poll #2 "Why collect logs?" (analysis)
  • Poll #1 "Which logs do you collect?" (analysis)
  • Technorati tags: , , ,
