This tutorial aims to show you the strength of using
Datagram SyslogView's filter system.
With the vast amounts of data stored in
the Syslogserver, effective tools are needed to identify important
events and log entries. SyslogView offers both quickfilters and
regular filters to aid in this process. SyslogView's alarm
definitions basically work in the same manner - helping you to be
notified when a certain type of event occurs (or doesn't occur).
The most effective way to learn the tips in this
tutorial is if you at the same time try filters of your own. If you
do not already have an installation of Syslogserver downloaded it
from http://www.syslogserver.com free of charge (and without a
questionnaire). There are a few restrictions without a license, but
none that will interfer with this tutorial.
Datagram Syslogserver uses the Syslog protocol,
defined in RFC 3164.
