Closed Source

Running on Windows? Since 1996, when we released the first-ever Windows syslog Server, Adiscon provides unique logging solutions on the Microsoft Platform.

right from the inventor…

In 1997, never seen before, we permitted organizations to integrate their Windows logs into a heterogeneous logging platform. With that, we invented the event log forwarding class of software. You couldn’t manage nowadays challenges without it.

Building on these innovations, we have created a best of broad set of solutions. Today in use by many large corporations and government institutions. Our cornerstone products MonitorWare Agent, WinSyslog, and EventReporter seemingly integrate into corporate environments, big and small. They enable smooth flow of system health, security and application log data.

Linux integration

Our Windows products are co-developed with our open source projects. This ensures best inter-operation. Of course, we also interface to other well-known open source projects. And of course with logging service providers.

Open Source

… now rules the world! Have a new webcam? Car? Fridge? It for sure will have some open source software in it. Even more so a data center.

rsyslog and more…

For many years, Adiscon contributes to open source development. Best known is our rsyslog project, which we started back in 2004 and has become one of the world’s most dominant logging implementation. We also contribute several libraries and other things that help make the logging world better.

corporate requirements

Law and industry regulations or best practices often require an organization to ensure someone is responsible for open source projects in use. This unfortunately can become a major stumbling stone. Not so with Adiscon’s support services. We not only know exactly what the logging tools are doing, we also provide support contracts that let you rest assured all is well. Legislation-wise. Technical. Our friendly staff will tell you how to make the best out of, e.g. rsyslog. The same staff, that on other occasions develops new features.

closed source

Do you need to stay always up to date with your software? Want fixes fast, be sure to work on supported OS platforms. Use Adiscon’s UpgradeInsurance to maintain your closed source products. It not only guarantees life-time free updates but also offers priority support. All in one convenient package.

open source

Did you know? The top problem in using open source software is to ensure that you have somebody responsible for maintaining it. Part of that compliance criterion is solved by e.g. purchasing OS vendor support. But for critical systems, like the logging infrastructure, this is often not enough the meet the requirements. We’ve seen cases where this lead to the unnecessary purchase of commercial products where open source would have fit much better. With Adiscon’s support services for the rsyslog family of projects, you can solve the compliance need at ease and for small cost.

custom development

The same, by the way, is true if you just need “that little feature” to make your life much happier. For Adiscon’s closed source offers, changes are often covered by UpgradeInsurance and for open source they are often covered by our support contract. And if it is a larger project, you can always hire us for custom development.


rsyslog 8.1901.0 (v8-stable) released

Today, we release rsyslog 8.1901.0. The most obvious change in this release is the version scheme. This has been changed to make it easier from us to immediately determine when a specific rsyslog version has been released. A more detailed description to the reasoning can be found on the following link: https://www.rsyslog.com/rsyslog-version-numbering-change/ Other notable changes …
