  1. 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.

  2. Allow Events Manger to save EVT file in EVT format

    Provide a function for a user to select a monitored windows log and to "save" in EVT format, but have GFI do an event collect just before the log is saved/cleared. Our admins need to save EVT in binary format. This causes a concern about event collection timing and the possibility of missing uncollected events if the log is manually cleared.

  3. Allow imports into user defined database

    Provide a dialog box to allow the user to specify which database to import events into. This would allow a user to import and review old data in a way that ensures the data set does not get mixed with live data.

  7. Database operation schedule or command line tool

    Database operation schedule now can configure only one schedule. Why not each operation job has its own schedule?
    If it is not possible, please consider to provide command line tool and we can use Windows schedule to run it!

  8. Ability to Export or Import Single Rule or Rule Folder

    Add the ability to export or import a single Event Processing rule or Event Processing Rule folder. This would allow customers to share custom rules with each other such as on the support forum, or allow GFI support to provide rules for special situations.

  9. Sort Time Field when sort Date field in Events Browser

    When in Events Browser and you click the Date field to sort, add an implied sort to the Time field. Currently, if you click Date to show newest date at the top, the Time field continues to sort ascending, with events at 1am at the top of the list ahead of events at 4pm. But the intent of the user clicking the Date field is to see the newest events at the top (or the oldest events at the top). So please add a connection that when you click the Date field to sort, the Time field is sorted to…

  10. Bring back silent installation

    II would like the ability to perform a silent installation to be re-instated in EventsManager 2012, ideally just like it used to be with previous versions, i.e.:
    EventsManagern /s /f1C:path.iss

    As servers move towards being headless - having a GUI will merely be an option in Windows Server 8 - it seems a backwards step to disallow silent installation.

  11. Null scheduled reports

    The schedule reports that inlude no data (No events were found matching the filtering criteria.) should not be emailed. The user should receive report only in case there are data to view

  12. 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.

  13. Custom Ports SQL server monitoring

    I would like the ability to monitor SQL servers that does not use the standard ports (1433). We have a number of installations that need to use custom ports (1435, 1438)

  14. 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

  15. New report filter to manages groups of ActDir

    We have a group of long list of users that need to be monitored login/logout.
    Instead of define manually a filter by user/account in wich write a row for each user that belongs to thist group, with need a filter where define one or more groups.
    GFI EvManager will ask to ActiveDir in order to get the users that belong to that specific group and will produce a report sorted by user.

  16. Offline mode

    EventsManager should have an offline mode, so that consultants could import saved logs and analyze them just as if they were collected online.

  17. Product Upgrade Instructions

    I suggest you...provide a detailed upgrade installation document which includes screen shots of the installation wizard so we know what to expect and can gather the necessary information to answer the prompts.

    Will we lose our existing db? Do we need to create a new db?
    will our config settings be retained, or if not can we import a backup copy from the previous version?
    Will all our custom rules be retained?

    Those of us who have gone through past upgrades and lost data bases, and config settings now need reassurance each time.

  18. Adding Commnets

    Since the main purpose of this tool is for reviewing logs, is there a facility to add comments to the logs (for e.g. what action we have taken for that particular event etc & then generate a report to show as evidence for log reviewing to Auditors).

  19. 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.

  20. Oracle auditing and SID's

    I suggest you to allow defining more than one SID on a Oracle events source. At the moment we can define only one SID on a host, and we can't add the same host specifying another SID, because the host is already defined. We can partially bypass the problem inserting two entries for the same host, one with the host name and the other one with the ip address, anyway using this solution there is no way to collect events for more then two SID's on the same host.
