CCDaveMake sure you have logging turned on for your agents:
- Go to Agent -> Event Log Settings
- Choose which event logs you want to gather and apply them to your agents
Then set your retention/archive settings:
- Agent -> Log History
Finally create the report to show you all the events you want:
- Reports -> Logs
- Choose Event Logs
- Choose the Event Log you want and definte your conditions
You can save this report to run quickly in the future.
Please note that you have to wait for your logs to be populated. Just by turning on logging doesn't mean it will grab all past logs. This just starts pulling the logs in from your agents. Also, if you are collecting a lot of logs your K database will start to grow large. Make sure you have enough space and use the Archive feature to offload the logs out of the database and on to disk in flat files.
firstname.lastname@example.orgHow and when/frequency should we offload the logs to disk?
thirteentwentyAwesome! I've been looking for a way to see if there are event trends on our clients and you have provided it... You get a cookie!
Does Kaseya 2 offer any charting capabilities?
If not how easily can I query this logs from the database? I guess, how can query archived event logs(Application, Security, System, DNS, etc....)?
mikhail.koganBottom line here is I would like to have a source of event logs for last 30 days. I want to simply query database and get the info. Is using vNtEventLog view the safest best? Or should I maybe use Kaseya' API to retrieve log information?
mikhail.kogangreat, I will use that.
One thing I cannot find is event's type(warning, error, etc...) I see that I can extract it from eventDetails field but not for all messages.
How can I find event's type or severity level?
mikhail.kogan1) With windows server 2008, will we get all logs from windows logs(Application, Security, System etc...) or will we need to point Kaseya to logs split by categories (Application and Services logs -> Microsoft -> Windows etc... )
mikhail.kogan2) Parallel question to #1: do all logs that get into "Application and Services Logs" also get into "Windows Logs"
