SolarWinds, a provider of IT management software, released its first log and event management free tool – SolarWinds Event Log Consolidator.

SolarWinds Event Log Consolidator offers near real-time evaluation of event logs, empowering users to respond proactively to Windows system issues.

In one centralized location, users can easily monitor, consolidate, or dismiss event logs and correlate issues.

"Without SolarWinds Event Log Consolidator, users would need multiple remote desktop sessions open at once to even begin trying to monitor this much event log data, and with that, they still couldn't compare it," said Sanjay Castelino, SolarWinds' VP, Market Leader – Networking & SIEM Business. "SolarWinds' new free tool makes trouble-shooting event log data easy for IT Operations."

SolarWinds Event Log Consolidator highlights:

* View, consolidate and dismiss event logs on multiple Windows systems

* Compare event logs from multiple systems side-by-side

* Define custom filters including logs by time period or specific servers

* Set alerts to notify by popup in the OS system tray

* Export key data to a .csv file

SolarWinds also released SolarWinds Synthetic End User Monitor (SeUM) v. 1.5

SeUM allows system administrators and application support staff to monitor response time proactively for multi-step web transactions.

The latest version of SeUM introduces the Cloud Player Portal that allows users to deploy transaction players easily to Amazon EC2. This enables monitoring from various cloud-based locations without the necessity of paying the expensive subscriptions required by other vendors for their SaaS offerings.

New Features in v. 1.5 :

- Cloud Player Portal: Easily deploys transaction players to Amazon® EC2 to enable web transaction monitoring from cloud-based locations and does not require users to pay subscription fees

- Multi-Tenant UI: Monitors website and web application performance for large deployments or in MSP environments

- Rich Content Recording and Playback: Record and playback dynamic web pages to include support for Flash and Silverlight; also validates the existence or absence of text and other website content

- Firewall-Friendly Communication: Transaction players make their monitoring data available for polling from the SeUM server, eliminating any need to open in-bound Firewall connections
