  • Easy to install set up and train users on.
  • The free version is a good free tool and handy to use for personal labs and other smalle use cases.
  • SNMP traps to user readable format is great, sometimes syslog and smnp messages can be hard to interpret and read with out a knowledge of how to do this.

I honestly don't think there is another Syslog server on the market that is as easy to use, manage, and set up as Kiwi Syslog. SolarWinds has created a great product. I think Kiwi Syslog is an excellent solution for really anyone in the market for a mid to large SNMP and Syslog collection agent. Kiwi has been a staple for almost as long as I've been in the IT industry. It's reliable, stable, and has years of excellent development behind it. Kiwi Syslog is one tool that, whether you use the free or the paid version, I believe a data center or any IT department truly needs.

  • Easy to install.
  • Easy to configure.
  • Support was top notch.
  • There are free options available so price is a concern.
If you have syslogs that you need to collect in an easy way this software would certainly do the job for you. It was easy to implement and has been a breeze to maintain. If you need to consider something opensource Graylog is a great alternative. If you are OK with the cost Kiwi is great.
