LogLogic Launches Lasso Gateway Appliance

LogLogic today launched the LogLogic LG 400, a gateway collection appliance, to support LogLogic's open source Project Lasso software. The LogLogic LG 400 enables users to monitor hundreds of remote Windows machines from a single location.

LogLogic launched Project Lasso in April 2006 as the first comprehensive open source solution for Windows systems administrators to collect log data in a central location. Project Lasso and the LogLogic LG 400 together provide easy-to-use Windows logging solutions that reduce maintenance costs and the impact on storage and processing of monitored servers.

In addition to the LogLogic LG 400, the company will publish Open Lasso SDK later this quarter.  It provides an extensible log collection framework, enabling users to expand log collection to other applications without expensive and cumbersome professional services from a third-party vendor. Open Lasso SDK's collection modules are particularly cost-effective for retailers using numerous custom applications, including point of sale (POS) applications, across multiple stores or branches.

"The LogLogic LG 400 and Open Lasso SDK continue to build upon LogLogic's commitment to open log management," said Bassam Khan, vice president of product management and product marketing at LogLogic. "We have developed Project Lasso, LogLogic LG 400, Open Lasso SDK, and the world's first open API for log management to empower our customers with highly customized environments to meet nuanced operational, security and compliance needs."

LogLogic LG 400 Key features include centralized Windows Event log collection that eliminates the need for countless Windows collection agents across various servers.

Its appliance-based gateway solution simplifies deployment and management costs. LG 400 collects up to 2500 messages per second from a remote host population of up to 500 systems.

It can convert remote Windows Events into a standard syslog-ng message stream for easy integration with LogLogic's family of log management solutions.

LogLogic provides log management for business operations, security and compliance for the most demanding global enterprises as well as mid-market companies. The LogLogic family of LX-ST and MX appliances address the compliance, operations and risk mitigation needs for collecting, storing, reporting and alerting on 100 percent of IT log data from virtually any device, operating system or application.
