Nagios Enterprises has just unveiled Nagios Log Server at the 2014 Nagios World Conference. Nagios Log Server is a powerful enterprise-class log monitoring and management solution that allows organizations to quickly and easily view, sort, and configure logs from any source on a given network. Log Server extends Nagios' existing network management offerings by providing users with the ability to dive deep into network events, logs, and performance standards.

“Last year, at the conference, we hosted a breakout session where attendees could share their opinion about what was lacking in their infrastructure and features they'd like to see. A simple, flexible, and powerful log monitoring solution was what they were asking for. They asked, we listened, and we delivered.” said Ethan Galstad – Founder and President of Nagios Enterprises.

Nagios Log Server greatly simplifies the process of managing network log data. With configuration wizards, users can get up and running quickly to start monitoring their logs in minutes. Log Server provides a central dashboard and management interface to easily oversee and drill down into infrastructure issues, network errors, and log events.

Log Server also can scale to meet the needs of any organization, so as an organization grows, additional instances can easily be incorporated into an existing server cluster – allowing for more power, speed, storage, and reliability to be added to the monitoring system. Automatic high-availability and fail-over capabilities are built into the back-end of Log Server to ensure data retention and storage security.

Designed for security and network auditing, Log Server provides users with powerful query dashboards, an alerting and notification engine, and a fully accessible API. Custom alert thresholds as well as query rules enable system administrators to mitigate compromises, and resolve security vulnerabilities before they affect critical business processes. Log Server can adapt to existing environments with back-end API access and a number of notification methods.

“We have put a lot of effort into Nagios Log Server and we are excited to release it,” said Product Development Manager Scott Wilkerson after the keynote announcement. “The launch of Nagios Log Server allows us to provide organizations with a superior and cost effective solution for log monitoring and management.”

Common implementations of Log Server include data retention and network auditing, security investigation, root cause analysis, system diagnostics, log event data backups and storage, change control and auditing, debugging and troubleshooting, and the identification of performance bottlenecks.

Additional key features include comprehensive analysis dashboards, pre-packaged high-availability and fail-over capabilities, built-in and integrated alerting options, highly scalable architecture, an extendable API and product integration, and more.

Introductory pricing for Nagios Log Server starts at $995 for a 2-instance license, and a free 60-day trial is also available on the Nagios website at go.nagios.com/logserver.

With multiple awards, notable users in every vertical and horizontal sector, and thousands of add-ons and extensions, Nagios is the industry standard in IT infrastructure monitoring. Nagios provides critical monitoring and alerting for networks, systems, applications, metrics, and business processes. Nagios Enterprises is the official commercial arm of Nagios and provides value-added services, products, and solutions to clients worldwide.
