Erik Norman (erik norman datagram se)
Jebaraj,

I'll try to answer your questions:

Q1) NTSyslog was depended on .NET (2.0) . Has this dependency been removed
from SyslogAgent? or Has it been included as part of the Setup for
syslogagent?

A: NTSyslog was made a long time ago, in standard c code. SyslogAgent is
written in c and c++ in a MFC environment. .NET is not required.

Q2)Is there any work on progress to develop syslogAgent to support for
Windows 2008?

A: SyslogAgent executes and work in a x64 environment (x64 build available
too). I'm not sure if anything else is needed - as I understand it Vista and
win2008 are very similar regarding event log.

Q3) Also does it support log rotate feature?

A: It handles clearing of the Event log, and many types of application log
rotation. The latter is however a jungle and i would suggest to test the
applications you are interested in.

Q 4) Does SyslogAgent Support hostname instead of IP addresses for the
Server Syslog?

A: No, by design. SyslogAgent wants to be able to send the logs at any time.
A failed DNS lookup would ruin that - hence IP adress based.

Cheers
Erik

Hi Erik,

thanks for your response. I have used the Syslogagent and it worked great on
XP/Vista/2003


A few clarifications:

1) NTSyslog was depended on .NET (2.0) . Has this dependency been removed
from SyslogAgent? or Has it been included as part of the Setup for
syslogagent?

2)Is there any work on progress to develop syslogAgent to support for
Windows 2008?

3) Also does it support log rotate feature?

Thanks,
Jebaraj

Hi Jebaraj,

We maintain Datagram SyslogAgent (GNU licensed), which is based on NTSyslog.
It has expanded some to also handle basic application log file handling, but
Event Log file handling is the main focus. Some major performance
bugs/design errors have also been eliminated over the years. Being GNU
licensed, it is of course free, with source code available.

Be ware, we have commercial products on the site as well :-)

Best regards
Erik Norman

Hi There,


I have been looking at using NTSyslog for vista but installation is failing.
Would you know a proper procedure to install this on vista and if it even
works on vista at all?

Would appreciate your response

Thanks,
Jebaraj
