Re: logging windows text-based files to central logging server

We're sending everything to a central syslog-ng server, and the
syslog-ng server forwards select logs to other systems such as the Cisco
CS-MARS box, a test splunk box, and a couple of other legacy syslog
servers looking for specific traffic.

This doesn't answer your question, but what central logging tool are you
using?  Thanks!

Subject: [SECURITY] logging windows text-based files to central logging

We have a number of windows applications logging to text-based log files
(IIS, apache, app servers, etc).  We'd like to get these logs off of the
windows servers and onto our central syslog server and CS-MARS device in
a (near) real-time manner. So far, I haven't been able to find a tool to
do this reliably.  Intersect Alliance's Epilog Agent for Windows is the
best I've seen so far, but I've found it prevents log rotation.

So, I'm curious as to what you are doing.  Are you logging these
text-based logs to a central location (syslog or otherwise)?  What tools
are you using to do so?
