By David Frost

SYDNEY - February 16, 2012. SolarWinds® (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, announced today the release of its first log and event management free tool - SolarWinds Event Log Consolidator.

SolarWinds Event Log Consolidator offers near real-time evaluation of event logs, empowering users to respond proactively to Windows system issues. In one centralized location, users can easily monitor, consolidate, or dismiss event logs and correlate issues.

'Without SolarWinds Event Log Consolidator, users would need multiple remote desktop sessions open at once to even begin trying to monitor this much event log data, and with that, they still couldn't compare it,' said Sanjay Castelino, SolarWinds' VP, Market Leader - Networking & SIEM Business.
