Gravity Square Event Log Gatherer 15.1
Gravity Square has added user-configurable event notification and more detailed query capabilities to its Event Log Gatherer. The application, marketed to organizations with 10 or more Windows servers and administered via Windows NT, 2000 or 2003 servers, culls events from systems built on layers of disparate architecture and logs them on an easy-to-access Web browser console. Reports and notifications can be based on a variety of event-log parameters, including source server, event-log types, record types and IDs, application sources and time-specific reports. Alerts can be sent via e-mail, cell phone or pager. SQL authentication provides security. Price depends on number of servers licensed. Contact company for pricing.
