    Hello everyone,

    I wish all good in year 2018 to all!

    We are looking for server management/analysis tool. Something that could collect logs, performance data, issue analysis etc. Would you have a hint for good tool? Maybe Microsoft SCOM? Or something else?

    Thanks

    Leos

    Hi Karim,

    well Im not looking for a monitoring tool like Solarwinds seems to me. We have already a monitoring tool (even its bad as hell there is no chance for me to change this in my company).

    Im rather looking for something with higher purpose. That could periodically collect logs, perf data and other stuff from servers (Win, SQL) which we could use to improve our environment. Central system to reach out and check even backwards what happened.

    Anything in your mind?

    Thanks

    Hi Leos,

     

    ‘DevOps’  – monitoring tools offer what you’re looking for. – I’m not sure, but I think ‘splunk’ is one of popular ones there.

    Please check:

    I’ve read ‘The DevOps Handbook’ which gives you lots of interesting ideas around the new world. – The monitoring tool you’re looking for is just one small piece of them.

      Hi,

      I’ve a some experience with it. It’s a great product for traditional datacenter workloads, but from my perspective nothing for the future (cloud, containers, etc.). There we could think about Microsoft’s OMS.

        In the area Im working now – production servers on sites, there will never be cloud or container .) we have a rock solid VMs with SAP application, uptime required 99,9% otherwise production or shipment might be blocked.

        Ill try to install test SCOM instance and see what it offers 🙂

        thanks

    SCOM is great solution if you want to monitor Windows machines. If you want to collect log files from different kinds of devices with different log formats, you might want to check out EventSentry.

    Another Log tool is the NetWrix Event Log Manager : Event Log Manager – Event log collector (4Sysops blog).
