Prism Releases Free Log Search Product

EventTracker PULSE features a "Google-like" search interface

Prism Microsystems has released EventTracker PULSE, a "full-featured" log search tool, as a free download available at

EventTracker PULSE lets helps administrators automate the retrieval, collection, and archival of log data, whether it's from a Unix/Linux or Windows environment, a Cisco device, or a syslog source.

The company describes the product's search interface as "Google-like." Users can search by keyword, exact phrase, and more, and have the ability to quickly identify the source of problems like service failures or security breaches.

Other features include real-time data collection, the ability to compress data by more than 90 percent, access to Prism's KnowledgeBase portal, limitless archival and collection, and more.

According to Steve Lafferty, Prism's vice president of marketing, administrators can benefit greatly from the insight log search products can offer, but are often hindered by the task of manually sifting through large amounts of log data.

"EventTracker PULSE puts this information right into the hands of system administrators and empowers them to easily investigate activity across the IT infrastructure," he said in a prepared statement. "The value in terms of time and cost savings alone is tremendous."
