Create and trigger custom alerts
An Alert Profile can be set up for specific criteria, like a failed authorization or a device being down, to alert and notify administrators in real time upon the occurrence of a particular event. You can use the built-in correlation rules and also set compliance-related alerts to ensure policy enforcement.
IBM AS/400 history log collection and analysis
History logs serve as a critical source for troubleshooting performance problems. History log analysis helps in reducing system downtime, increasing the network performance and tightening the security. You can generate exhaustive reports on history log events such as device status changes, system operator messages, attempted security violations, and so on with EventLog Analyzer. These reports will help you meet the demands of IT auditors without the pain of manually reviewing the log files.
IBM AS/400/iSeries file integrity monitoring
The most important advantage of having EventLog Analyzer to manage your AS/400 logs is the File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) module. Built right in to the product, EventLog Analyzer's FIM lets you create reports and alerts on critical changes to the files or folders being monitored to prevent tampering and create audit trails. You can also configure FIM reports to be automatically generated and emailed on a set schedule.
IBM AS/400/iSeries journal log support
EventLog Analyzer doesn't stop with supporting history logs of IBM AS/400. It also extends the support to IBM AS/400/iSeries journal logs and provides to you an option to generate and schedule user based reports for the same.
