Scaling to large networks with syslog-ng
With incomplete or compromised log data will you be able to find the root cause of an outage? Spot a cyberattack? Pass a compliance audit? See emerging trends in your application? Using local disk buffering, client-side failover and application layer acknowledgement syslog-ng can transfer logs with zero message loss. Encrypted transfer and storage ensure logs cannot be tampered with, preserving the digital chain of custody.
With powerful filtering, parsing, re-writing and classification options, syslog-ng can transform logs on remote hosts, reducing the amount and complexity of log data forwarded to analytic tools like SIEM or APM, reducing their total cost of ownership. The PatternDB feature can correlate log data in real-time, comparing log message content with predefined patterns. The flexible configuration language allows users to construct powerful, complex log processing systems on remote hosts with simple rules.
