  1. Allow one EM server to report from other EM servers

    It would be nice to have the reporting tool with EventsManager to configure it to look at multiple EventsManager servers to have a single set of reports. I don't want to have to manually change the database to generate another set of reports for my second EventsManager server.

  2. View Edit Query Fields

    When I create a view, I need to select fields to to query on. The Edit Query Restriction dialog box presents me with a list of literally THOUSANDS of possible fields. And it does this with no way to sort them!

    If the field is not in the first 1-2 dozen, well, good luck! The fields are, as far as I can tell, completely random. I would dearly love to be able to sort the field list! It's ridiculous the way it is now, poring through column after column after column after column of text, eyes crossing, mouse-click finger growing…

  3. Allow non-administrators to run EventsManager

    Currently EventsManager requires all users (even read-only) to be a local administrator just to run the program.

    What's the point of having a local user database within the program if only local administrators can launch it? Seems odd to have read-only users still be god of the entire system doesn't it?

    I want to be able to have some "users" of EventsManager that are not a local administrator.

    Older versions of the program didn't have this "feature" and shouldn't be too difficult of an adjustment to make.

  4. Adding Comments in

    For every server, be able to add comments not necessarily connect to an event (like Microsoft dynamics CRM).

    Currently we can add comments according to events but not directly in the Comment field.

  5. ssl email in events manager

    I just got finished with a chat session with support. I was amazed to learn that events manager does not support ssl email. Most all businesses that I know have already switched to this or working on it. I feel like this should be a top priority to be able to fully utilize this product.

  6. Allow more than one schema to be used in text log collection

    At present EventsManager only allows you to use one schema per server for collection and processing of text logs. If you have more than one text log type on a single server that requires different schemas for processing them, you cannot specify a second schema to process the different text log types.

  7. Database creation for historical data

    At the moment of writing databases are created when needed, but it ccould have data in it with a creation date that is not logical to store next to eachother (time-wise). I like the database switch mechanism in Mailarchiver. Isn't it possible to do this also for ESM? So when I add a source, it will start taking the data from that machine and then store it in the databases related to either month, bimonthly, quarterly, half-yearly, annual.

  8. More then one Email template

    It's only possible to format one email message under "Alerting Options". I would be nice if I could add new templates. This way the alert mails could provide more information to a special alert and could be formatted in a way that only needed information are displayed. This on template must be formatted very universally.

  9. Add variable %rule description%

    I would like to use the rule description in my alerting options, but it's not available. Although there is %rule name%, %check name% and %check description% it's not possible to get the information of the rule description. Please add this to the fields of an event.

  11. Change license model to open new opportunities

    I talked with some customers/resellers, which didn't buy EventsManager, because the license model is not the best. I've collected some ideas from them:

    License Model 1:

    - License per format and node (e.g. 3x snmp enabled router = 3x EventsManager SNMP Licenses)
    - difference in Windows Eventlog for Workstation and Server (already available, so no change needed)
    - difference in Syslog for Workstation and Server (e.g. 3x Ubuntu Deskop = 3x EventsManager Syslog for Workstation)

    They tell me the reason: The customer don't understand to buy a very expensive server license for a router or switch (e.g. per Node =…

  12. EventsManager sees consistency/correlations

    From a large account we've had the question if it was possible to let GFI ESM see correlation between events. For example (and many examples could be given for this account) they have a key less entry system that has multiple touch points. Whenever someone opens a door, takes the elevator and enters a server room, with 'some' additional intelligence, this chain of events could be reported as a security breech.
    Why should this be added, is because this way the reporting of special events that are not normal, can be flagged as a breech of security and when there…

  13. scan by OU

    We have three locations and only one domain I would like to be able to scan by OU. I think this would be an easy feature to add. This will add much more control over this product while also utilizing active directory which we are all familiar with.

  15. Time Date on Reports

    In the older versions of Events Manager when you ran reports it would put a time and date stamp in the report. The new version does not have this. The only way to see when the report was run is in the name of the file when it is generated. For SOX reports it is necessary to have a way to show when the report was run in a way that cannot be altered.

    Can the Time/Date stamp be put back into the reports. Without it SOX documentation portion of the software is unusable.

  17. Disable "Remember my Password" checkbox

    In GFI EventsManager, users can check a box to remember their password upon future launches of the Management Console. However, in some environments, administrators may wish for this option to be unavailable.

    I propose the ability to disable this check box, either through the console or in a configuration file.

  18. report graph monthly events together instead of just daily

    I would like to create graph report with grouped monthly events instead of just daily events. We would add to graph menù an item selection so that each dot of graph should be the total on month events instead of total of events each day. In this way we can show a clear and simple report with the total events of many months.
    Thank you

  20. EventsManager Events Browser Tab

    When switching to the Events Browser tab, the application should wait for the user to initiate a query instead of resubmitting the previous query. In addition, the user should be able to quickly and easily time bound the query instead of searching all records.
