Kiwi Syslog Server is an application designed for allowing users to store syslog messages that they receive from other network devices, also providing a number of options for processing the received messages. The syslog messages that enter the Kiwi Syslog Server can arrive from a variety of sources, such as Unix and Linux hosts, switches, routers, and other similar devices.

Visualizing the received messages is very easy as the program displays them on the main screen. Along with them, it includes a detailed set of information on each message, including the date when the message was received, its time, and the hostname. Another appreciable aspect of the application is the fact that each message is filtered through a number of rules, which you may either leave as defined by default or modify according to what relevant information you wish to receive. Once a message has been processed through all the rules, it is passed and listed on the main screen, where you will be notified by a series of alerts that you may predefine.

The interface is user-friendly, providing easy access to the main functions of the application. You may then access its secondary functions through the various panels displayed once you click on the inlays of the main screen.

To conclude with, Kiwi Syslog Server proves to be a fairly useful tool for constantly monitoring the state of various devices connected within your network, as well as for forwarding syslog messages to other servers.
