Syslog Forwarding

We added the syslog forwarding feature in Syslog Watcher 5.0. Syslog Watcher can work as a syslog relay and forward incoming syslog messages to other syslog servers. The syslog forwarding supports message filtration and selection of the syslog server depending on message properties.

Revised User Interface

We refreshed the user interface of Syslog Watcher Manager. Visual appearance and structure of the user interface windows were improved for better user experience.

Storage Viewer

Syslog Watcher 5.0 can open a syslog storage folder without the hassle of changing the server settings and restarting Syslog Watcher Manager a few times. Click the Open button, choose a folder, and start working with syslog messages collected before or backed-up storage files.

Updated Settings

We revised the syslog server settings. We also changed the structure of the configuration files. The color rules for the Grid View as well as the HTML/CSS template for the Message Details view are now stored in the server’s configuration file so that it can be used remotely.


The initial installation of Syslog Watcher 5.0 includes a free 30-day Pro License key for the software evaluation.
