  • need apps for alerting when specifics events happen

    guys, could anyone suggest me of an application that receives logs from the even viewer and can send me alerts when specifics events happens, like for example if I want to receive an email alert when a user produces too many invalid logon attempts or when someone tries to delete a file that they don't have permission for it.... yes I know that alerting needs to be turned on.

    thanks

    What OS? How many servers? How do you want to be alerted?

        In all honesty, there are a bazillion applications that will do this. Why don't you Google it and take a look at some of them.

          well to be honest, I have tested a lots of them, like eventsentry, packettrap, solarwind's orion etc... but must of them are not free, and the free ones that I've found didn't convince me... so I came here to see if any fellow tech, has tried some I didn't know, I certantly didn't come here looking for links to google... if that all you've learned as tech in your years of experience, then I don't know what to tell you!
          but thantks for the help any way!

            With respect, your initial post gave no indication that you had done any research. Had you mentioned that, and maybe which products you had tried and why you didn't like them, then maybe we could offer better help. As it was, the impression was that you had not tried any of the available products. Therefore it was deemed prudent to show you where to find various examples.

            So with that in mind: what products have you tried and in what way did they not meet your requirements?

              My thoughts exactly, gforce. This is too broad a subject and I thought the best course of action would be a Google search and a test drive of some that are found from the search. You're likely to get pages of responses to this, so here's my two cents:

              I currently use Tembria Server Monitor. It's relatively inexpensive (around $800.00 US) and has all the checks you're looking for.

              I've also used:

              AlchemyEye Pro
              ServersAlive!
              LogMeister
              EventSentry
              SolarWinds

                well I tested PacketTrap the free version looks very promising, but the only problem is that they are not including any kind of alerting in the free version, not even emails, they paid version from packetTrap I liked but like I said you have to pay for it... I've also tried EvenSentry, but it lets you do very little with the free version, and PerfMon included in Windows 2003 server, is not what I need.... I just plan to collect logs from 2 server, both of them 2003 one is a file server/print server/applicaion server and the other one is Exchange, so I'd be collecting quite a bit of data mainly from Active Directory, I'm looking for something free as budget is tight right now, and if it can collect logs from a Linux system even better....

                hope that explains your questions

                  I can recommend eventsentry as well.
