      I prefer SL4NT. It can be found at

      It's got a *ton* of features in it. I have it set to email me if it sees
    specific strings or regular expressions. In additions, if it sees a certain
    number of PING packets which exceeds a threshold I set in a specific amount
    of time, then I have it email me also. This was invaluable during the
    Welchia outbreaks with remote users dialing in. I also like it's ability to
    send output to a telnet viewer so I can watch specific data scroll past in
    real time as I troubleshoot a problem.

    Dear List,

    i have cisco pix firewall that is sending it log data to a cisco syslog
    server (windowsxp workstation).
    it is working fine with me since it is a service, so i willl be sure that it
    is running whenever the server is up and running.

    But i have two questions concerning this syslog:
    1 - the log files are too big since everyfile contains the whole day logs,
    and since the file size is about 400 + Mb, i am not able to open it. kindly,
    is there any third party utility which i can use to manage (open, check,
    filter, ....) the log files of the cisco syslog?

    2 - is there any other syslog server which could work with the cisco pix
    firewalls, and which is a service and NOT an application?

    your fast respond is highly appreciated,

    with regards,
