Kiwi Harvester is a free application that listens for data via the computer's serial interface and converts the data received into standard syslog messages. The messages are then forwarded via the UDP protocol to a central logging server such as Kiwi Syslog Server.
The Kiwi Harvester allows you to integrate non-ethernet enabled devices into your central logging system. Such devices include: PBX call logging systems, main frame computers, remote sensing devices and router console ports.
Kiwi Harvester is installed as a Windows NT service and runs on Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows 2003.
The application has a small footprint and is easily and quickly configured via an ini text file.
