Monitoring the eG Syslog server

eG Enterprise provides a specialized eG Syslog monitoring model (see Figure 1) to periodically check the Syslog file for specific patterns of the errors/warning messages. If messages that match the configured patterns are found, eG Enterprise alerts administrators to them, so that they can initiate the necessary remedial measures.

Figure 1 : The layer model of eG Syslog

Since the bottom 4 layers have been dealt with extensively in the Monitoring Unix and Windows Servers document, the sections to come will discuss the first layer of Figure 1 only.
