SyslogView is the client
provided to be used with the SyslogServer. The client attaches to
the server with an ODBC connection, meaning that the client can be
run on any workstation or server on the network. Furthermore,

Filters can also be saved
and combined with other filters, providing even greater use. A

syslog message from a (noisy) server. The filter can be left active
by default - resulting in much improved readability of interesting
log entries. Filters can be complemended with user SQL syntax for
the advanced users.
Alarm rules are configured
and inspected from SyslogView. Alarms can be defined to alert the
administrator by a pop-up or email when an interesting event
occurs on the network. The alarm process is handled by the server,
meaning that the client does not have to be active in order for the
alarms to work.
