Event Alarm Monitors EVT and EVTX Logs, Side-By-Side!

Event Alarm Version 6 was released in late August. This week, we sent out our official version update announcement.

Just like our prior Event Analyst and Event Archiver releases, this version of Event Alarm is completely Microsoft Vista™ and Windows Server ® 2008 compatible, and features our revolutionary LogRefiner™ technology. You can download Version 6 of Event Alarm here.

We've already mentioned in a bunch of posts that trying to read legacy EVT files on Windows Vista and Server 2008 is quite a chore, with missing fields and information being quite common.

Well here's the good news. Thanks to our pioneering LogRefiner™ technology, you can remotely monitor EVT and EVTX files natively and side-by-side when Event Alarm is installed to a Microsoft Vista or Server 2008 computer. No weird conversions or intermediate steps are necessary, and you get all the data parsed correctly from both log formats the first time. For those admins who are attempting to run Windows Vista or Server 2008 on their workstations, this is a big plus because now you can use Event Alarm as your preferred monitoring solution for all of your Microsoft Windows computers, regardless of how many have been migrated forward to Vista/Server 2008 and the new EVTX format.

On top of Event Alarm's remote, agentless log monitoring, when Event Alarm is purchased as part of Dorian Software's Total Event Log Management Solution™, you effectively have a comprehensive platform for archiving, analyzing, and monitoring event log data from EVT and EVTX log files throughout your network, all from a single install point, network topology permitting.

Here's the full launch announcement for Event Alarm Version 6, complete with a comprehensive feature listing.
