I personally recommend EventSentry since it's reasonably priced, and offers more features than the free products out there. They also have decent support.

I had high hopes for this product. I consider myself well-adept at figuring things out. This product is extremely complicated, and one big can of worms. Hard to get it to do anything meaningful, except constantly alert you about minor issues. Dreadful documentation, if it could even be called that. It's a shame, because this looks like it could have potential, if you could ever figure it out.

I am currently on the 30-day trial of EventSentry and so far I like it. One of the things I am not sure about is the syslogs. I currently use SonicWall Analizer for syslog monitoring. One of the things I like about SonicWall Analyzer is the GUI. It breaks down all the traffic and puts it into an easy to use format. I have started forwarding the syslog packages to EventSentry. So far its just separating them by the type of event that was created. (Error, Warning, info, ext...)

I want to like EventSentry so much. Clean interface, well-designed and thought out product, $850.00 for a quote of only servers within my environment. We're a small business so that's tough to get a green light on.

I have tried EventSentry with good success but not nearly in the same scale as you have.Their pricing scheme only goes up to 1000. It installs an agent on the workstations, but managing the agent and the system itself is very easy, especially when it comes to updates (very, very rare). The system itself is split into two parts, the management app that sits on the server and then the web reports which sits also on the same server.The management app is to manage agents, install, upgrade, and check for versions. Also to install and make policies, what to log, where to log and what to alert on. The web reports are to search and view the logs. This is an invaluable tool when you have some user getting locked out constantly and you are not sure where that is happening, but here you can just search for the username and it lists every event on all workstations (and servers, like the AD servers). It also logs sessions—very, very cool feature. So it logs that this user logged into this workstation, he started this process and had it running for this long. It does a lot of other things as well, but I have not done much practical experience with that. For example, it does software and hardware inventory along with logging print queues—so you can see how much is being printed per printer, and how much each user has printed.
