Event Monitoring Software

Event Monitoring Software Overview

What is Event Monitoring Software?

Event Monitoring Software is a subset of network monitoring software. Event monitoring consists of analyzing and notifying network administrators of relevant events so they can remediate errors, or enforce security policy. An event monitoring ecosystem consists of software and hardware components such as operating systems, database management systems, applications, firewalls, processors, etc.


The log data generated by these components is mostly routine and irrelevant to issues. Event monitoring software automates log analysis, allowing administrators to focus on more important tasks instead of manually going through the log. Examples of meaningful events signaled by event logs to administrators may include:

  • When a user accessing a system exhibits unusual (or policy-violating) behavior

  • When a program encounters an error and fails

  • When a security policy is violated

  • When a piece of hardware fails or exhibits warning signs of failure

  • Other status change events

Beyond supplying automated, “agentless” log analytics, some event monitoring software vendors provide noise reduction by suppressing alerts. These IT event management solutions can group and suppress alerts associated with a single failure event. Removing redundant and repetitive alerts allows administrators to focus on restoring systems.

Features of Event Monitoring Software

Event monitoring software typically includes the following capabilities:

  • Agentless monitoring of on-premise, cloud, hybrid, and private network devices

  • Configurable noise reduction tools and alerting system

  • Filtering & suppression, “flood control,” device or system specific event alert suppression

  • Configurable alert thresholds (e.g. time limits, max notifications, etc.)

  • Centralized configurable dashboard for condensed network health information

  • Correlative analysis and reduction (i.e. to reduce a multitude of alerts to fixable events)

  • Alert grouping (i.e. lump related alerts into single event log)

  • Staff may opt-in or opt-out of alert groupings

  • Retention of historical device events (e.g. performance benchmarking, failures, etc.)

  • Monitor hardware characteristics (e.g. CPU temperature) as well as software characteristics

  • Privileged user monitoring

  • Internal user activity reports

  • External user device access and user session tracking

  • Machine learning/correlation engine for detecting or analyzing malicious or policy violating behaviors

  • Monitor and configure router traffic monitoring, accepted and denied logs

Pricing Information

IT event monitoring and management software are available via perpetual license or subscription. They may be installed on-premise or deployed from the cloud. Some vendors may offer free trial periods or ‘freemium’ versions of their product that typically have limited feature availability. Plan prices increase with the number of integrations required and the number of users. Subscription plans are priced per user. Depending on the number of integrations plans may be available for $15 to $75 per month, per user. Alternately, pricing may depend on integrations rather than users. Pricing, in this case, may range from or around $3,000 per integration.
