In the team I am working there is a problem with logs management, we manage more then one hundred machines with heterogeneous systems, with several hundred applications.
Heterogeneous systems with different platform: windows, linux, documentum, kofax, websphere, iis, etc. All with different log formats and log location, some in the event-viewer and most in separate log files, etc.
Sometimes its hard to figure out in what machines are installed each systems, some times machines get out of free space, some times there no easy way to find where the logs are located.
Ideally logs should be accessibile very fast so we can collaborate in trouble-shutting immediately reducing down-time of anomalies. And we should keep them for some time so non obvious problems detected "a posteriori". And Free disk space must be assured, system in production environment shouldn't stop ever.
Do you know a solution and/or product that can help in a situation like this?
