Windows Server event logs contain valuable information about your Windows Server infrastructure, including performance, uptime, access, security, processes and more. They are critical for finding root causes of failures, diagnosing system issues, uncovering security incidents and identifying performance bottlenecks.
The amount of event logging that takes place in Windows is impressive. Whether a user logs into their computer, or an admin modifies a security group, the event gets logged. With all this activity taking place inside your infrastructure, it's becoming increasingly important to monitor these logs files and analyze key metrics for optimal performance. Many organizations, however, lack the time or the tools to do automated log event tracing for Windows.
Sumo Logic makes it extremely easy to monitor your Windows event logs and gain valuable insight from your data. Sumo Logic’s real-time indexing engine processes and manages Windows Server data with near-zero latency, and can help your business reduce critical application and infrastructure downtime by quickly diagnosing and resolving Windows Server issues before they impact your system, network or customers.
The first step to getting your Windows data into the system is setting up a collector on a server. Once you've set up a server, all you need to do is configure a Windows Event Source and you're good to go. At this point, all of your Windows event logs from this machine will stream into Sumo Logic in real-time and you can get started with log event tracing for Windows right away.
Once your logs are in the system, Sumo Logic provides you with the tools and services to allow you to quickly gain valuable insight from these logs.
