Welcome to LogLady, the small, fast Syslog server for Windows.  LogLady allows you to collect all the Syslog traffic on your network in a single place.   Many devices on your network can probably output Syslog messages.  Printers, routers, firewalls, Linux computers, and Windows can all output syslog messages.

LogLady provides a way to filter, analyze, and act on messages.  You may want to be e-mailed when a router identifies an issue.   Some messages could trigger the execution of a program to deal with the situation.  LogLady can do all this and more.

We hope you like this program.  If you have suggestions on how it could be improved please send us E-Mail at support@mingham-smith.com
