  2. When using alternate credentials, disable use of GFI credentials

    When trying to connect to servers outside of the domain, GFI credentials are used to log in even when alternate credentials are provided. This creates a lot of failed log in noise which must in turn be filtered out, requiring more processing.

  5. Support regular expressions in rules and views for text logs

    Please include support for regular expressions to be used in text log rules and views. There are ways to identify threats to web applications but most require use of regular expressions. The following source defines RE's for the top 10 threats:

  6. Enable Multiple User Access Login

    Under GFI EM you can't login with Admin privilege and view-only and at a the same time, infact you have to close the console before logging in with another account with lower privileges. I'd like to have this feature inorder to enable more people to view the product at same time.

  7. Support VMware SNMP and Syslog out of the box

    Since VMware is present in many environments now, it would be useful if GFI EventsManager automatically recognized and had canned Event Processing and Views for VMware ESXi and vCenter.

  10. Customize names for EventsManager Scheduled Report attachments

    I would like to control the naming of the pdf attachments of Events Manager scheduled reports. Previous versions of Events Manager and SELM were consistent with their attachment names (i.e. always named sched0_xxxxx.pdf, sched1_xxxxxx.pdf, etc.). This allowed us to run a script to rename them to something descriptive i.e. AAA - Account Lockout Report.pdf. We have several customers who we perform network monitoring for and the automated renaming script, although not ideal, was efficient.

    With Events Manager 2012 there is no consistency in the names of the report attachments. Since they are completely random we are unable to know which…

  11. Add export report to Excel (xls) feature back into EventsManager

    Before version 2012, you could export reports in Excel format. This was great because we had the reports go to a folder on the network and once a day, we would go to the folder and review the events and comment on why the event was in the log. With the new reporting, you can only export to pdf and html which it is not possible to easily comment on events.

  13. Customize PDF report filename

    ReportPack now creates pdf reports as system filename totally incongruent with the filter action, sense, and selections defined in custom-job.
    We need to customize the filename of the pdf reportfile as, for example, with the same name of the custom-job that generated that report.
    Thanks

  14. Real-Time Status display

    I am a long-time user of ServerMonitor. I am now being forced to convert to EventsManager with Active Monitoring only licenses. I would like to have a display of the current status of my servers. Currently, if I look at "Monitoring Statistice", if have a single failed check followed by successful checks, the row is still red. Also, I cannot remove the unused sections that don't apply to Active Monitoring, wasting a LOT of real estate on the screen!

  15. Reading Events Archived by Windows

    Being able to access event log archives that may have been created prior to EventsManager and pull these events into the system would be fantastic. Would help get everything under one roof in a way.

  16. Organize the database rotation at folder level

    When database rotation is enabled, ESM creates the new databases with a multitude of files in the same folder, creating a chaos at folder level.

    I would like to suggest that ESM creates a new folder when the db gets rotated, so it would be less of an administrative task when it comes to move specific database, or manually delete entire database.

  17. GFI EventManager Performance

    Currently GFI eventmanager is a 32 bit application. It is a little bit slow when it has to process large quantity of logs (This has been experienced in out operation). Let make this application a 64 bit cause there are powerful servers in the market which can support heavy load.

  18. Disable logon attempts from the account service is running as

    We are using Eventsmanager to collect event logs etc from a server located in a DMZ, which is out of reach from domain controllers. This prevents the account under which GFI Eventsmanager service is running to log on to this server. We have specified another set of credentials in the Event Source properties.

    However, the service still tries to log on to this server as the domain account that the EM service is running under in addition to the credentials supplied in said properties. This generates 36 failed logon attempts per hour on a production server, which triggers some other…

  19. EventsManager - Alert Threshold Settings Should Limit Number of Notifications Sent

    EventsManager - Alert Threshold Settings currently do not allow the end user to specify the number of notifications sent once an alert is triggered. By default, EventsManager will send one notification for each event processed and accounted for as part of the threshold. This can pose issues with E-mail or SMS congestion if a critical process or event occurs.

    Example A) EventsManager is configured to sent E-mail alerts on a failed system sign-on event - If 10 or more of these events are logged within 60 seconds, send a Notification. Currently, if a process running constantly experiences a password reset…
