Monitor all your Log Files

You will only need one license and one instance of the Log File Parser Monitoring agent to monitor any number of log files on multiple servers. The agent currently has support for Windows folders and SMB shares. Your log files are text-based and can include a date and time. For correlated monitoring, a start match value and something to end the match (ACK/NAK).

Use the Nodinite Web API to create Power BI Reports with valuable statistics. Learn and visualize or get the KPIs of interest.

Make your organization aware of the problem

You or the responsible organization become aware and involved as Nodinite detects a problem with content in your log files and sends an alert using the built-in Alarm plugins.

Delegate control and pay attention to reported problems with ease

With Nodinite, you can perform some remote operations and manage the evaluated state by monitoring your log files. Delegate control using role-based security and manage your Log File Parser configurations from the Web Client.

Stay secure

Nodinite has Role-based security and enables you to restrict access down to individual log files using Monitor Views. We at Nodinite think it is wise to limit the number of power users (administrators) from having direct access to servers and services. All operations in Nodinite are being audited.

How do I know how many Log files I have?

Nodinite has a smart way to group your resources, either by looking directly at the Web Client or you can customize and automate this further through the Web API and that data can be used within your Power BI Reports.

Grow together

Over time as the number of log files grows with additional applications and other services, Nodinite and the Agent automatically detect and monitor additional log files. There is no need to code or change anything within your logging applications.
