Any network administrator will tell you that event log data and log storage can quickly grow out of control – even if you’re just working with the security log or system event log . Not only is this inconvenient, but increasingly stringent network security and server security standards require more in terms of eventing and event log audit trails.
First introduced in 1997, Event Archiver is a robust event log tool with user friendly controls and sophisticated functionality. With it, you can back up and clear system event log files automatically on remote machines, and without having to install a client on each computer. Use one console on a central computer to manage all of the Windows NT ®, Windows ® 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista computer event log files across multiple domains.
Event Archiver 7 and above even provides support for EVTX files – the new log format introduced in Windows Vista ™ eventing. Not ready for Vista? No problem – your log files aren’t ready either. Dorian’s exclusive LogRefiner ™ technology enables you to seamlessly work with EVT and EVTX files side-by-side. That means no forced upgrade. Move to Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 when you, management, and the auditors are ready.

Here is something else management and the auditors will like: By letting our event log collection software automatically manage your event log consolidation, you are free and better able to initiate a more aggressive event log auditing policy on your network. For example, you can enable verbose logging on server applications such as Microsoft Exchange Server, since event log storage size is no longer a concern.
Event Archiver is Part of Our Total Solution for Windows Event Log Software and Syslog Server Management
In fact, we think of it as a “set once, run forever” application that saves your organization considerable time and money. The time and resources of a Windows administrator are valuable. Deploying Event Archiver greatly reduces time, cost, and headaches in your organization’s event log auditing and compliance efforts – its agent optional architecture is just one way it does this.
Compliance with internal security standards and regulatory acts such as HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) increasingly call for the collection and storage of event log files. Event Archiver automates this, and administrators can start cutting through event log entries instead of wasting time and resources collecting and storing event logs manually. If requirements call for both the collection of log files to a central store as well as the ability to leave “active” event log files wrapping for review by server administrators, that isn’t a problem with automated “leave-a-copy” collection capability.
Need to Collect Logs Across a WAN or Distributed Network?
Collecting log files is difficult enough. And, in a highly secure or distributed network, it can get even more complicated.
Dorian’s Importer – for use alongside Event Archiver – practically eliminates the hassle.
It can even assist in limited bandwidth situations – even beyond what Event Archiver can do natively and with off-peak scheduling.
And, if your organization is concerned about implementing and maintaining a database for log file retention, Event Archiver provides automatic database maintenance. As you can see in the free Event Archiver evaluation software, improvements such as this are making compliance with log collection and storage requirements easier than ever.
Though this event log collection solution works independently, our Event Rover ®, Event Analyst ® and Event Alarm ® tools are a perfect complement to the ease and automation of Event Archiver. In addition, including Event Alarm and its syslog capability is your bridge to a more comprehensive log management strategy.
