We are pleased to announce that EventLog Inspector 3.2 has been released and is available for downloading.
The most significant improvement in this version is a new algorithm for log analysis and recognition of new records. There are some undefines in the behavior of Windows EventLog API, depending on the Windows OS version or even the Registry settings. This fact caused the EventLog Inspector to process log records twice at times. EventLog Inspector 3.2 takes a completely redesigned approach to analyzing Windows logs, thus avoiding this issue. Also, we have added an important setting: the maximum number of new messages that may appear in a Windows log. This limitation helps to avoid flooding in case EventLog Inspector has not been used for a long time.
After a while, we plan to release another update whose primary goal is to refresh the outdated UI and, secondly, expand the feature set of EventLog Inspector. So, we are collecting feature requests now. If you think that a particular function should be added to the new version, please submit it here.
At the same time, as practice shows, most of our customers use only one feature of EventLog Inspector. They use it to forward Windows logs to the Syslog Watcher server. Therefore, we are considering the possibility of releasing a reduced version of EventLog Inspector. This special edition would be much easier to set up but would support only one function: forward Windows log records to a syslog server.
If you have EventLog Inspector installed, please respond to the survey.
