What makes Windows event log monitoring difficult?

Managing siloed event logs is time-consuming

Windows event logs grow exponentially and managing data in a distributed environment becomes more chaotic and time-consuming. It is challenging for the IT team to manually track and monitor huge volumes of log data scattered across multiple devices.

Limited features deter proactive troubleshooting

Traditional Windows log viewer tools offer limited capabilities to quickly identify Windows errors and warnings. Such tools struggle to intelligently search and filter massive log data to pinpoint log events that need immediate attention.

Event log analysis can be tedious and chaotic

Most logging tools are not equipped to visualize Windows logs to facilitate root cause analysis, and teams have to rely on third-party tools to analyze log patterns. Additional integrations and managing multiple tools becomes an overhead for teams.
