i will archive some logs from our SA2500
when i take the logs , it will be in text format , is there any sylog server or any software by which i can open this file & have search capabilities the same as SA ( by user , by time , ......)
If you send the file(s) via archiving; they are sent as a tar.gz file and would need to be unzipped before reading.
if you are doing syslogging as well, i believe kiwi has some search functions (in addition to splunk and the others mentioned)
Have you looked into Splunk or Zenoss?
