Yes, the trial version of Kiwi Syslog Server has all the features of the licensed version.
Kiwi Syslog Server will continue to run long after any maintenance period expires. However, you will not be able to download and apply new updates if you fall out of maintenance.
Most people install the software as a Windows service and let it run in the background, using the Kiwi Syslog Server Console to configure it, and either the Console or optional secure Web Access to monitor logs in real-time. However, if you only wanted to use Kiwi Syslog Server to occasionally troubleshoot your network, you may want to run it as a foreground application instead.
Check the “Configuring Syslog enabled devices” section of the Kiwi Syslog Server manual
Try the Kiwi Syslog Library & Support section on thwack, SolarWinds community forum.
The software is licensed on the number of Kiwi Syslog Servers you deploy. There is no limit on the number of machines or devices that may send logs to Kiwi Syslog Server. Servers deployed on virtual machines each count as single instances. (Site licenses are also available for large deployments.)
Our software is built and tested to support more than two million messages an hour without tuning. (That would support more than 500 machines each sending one message a second.)
First use the “File | Send test message to localhost” action to check that the server is alive. Then install Kiwi SyslogGen on a nearby machine, point it to your Kiwi Syslog Server’s IP address, and send a message to check remote connectivity.
First, configure your email server settings in the “Email” section of your Kiwi Syslog Server settings. Then create a new Rule with one or more Filters selecting interesting messages, and an Action of “E-mail message.”
Yes, to be able to receive log events from Windows machines, you need to install the Event Log Forwarder for Windows on each client that will be forwarding log events to your Kiwi Syslog Server as syslog messages. Event Log Forwarder for Windows is a free tool and can be installed on an unlimited amount of clients.
