Setting up event forwarding RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I'd like to forward events from end devices. There are about 5000 devices on the estate. I only want to forward errors, criticals and warnings.

    What sort of server spec would I need and are there any pitfalls I should be aware of?

    Thanks in advance for your replies

  • Not sure that understand you.

    But you can set up simple event forwarding.

    Please use this link and ask if something will go wrong:

  • Hi Ahriman

    Thanks for the reply. I've read that blog already but it doesn't really give any indication of how much resources are required to act as the event collector. 

    For instance if I built a desktop PC with 2GB of RAM and a 3Ghz core duo, onto Server 2008 would it be able to adequately deal with all the events forwarded to it, or should I be using something more substantial.

    That all I'm after really.  Some guidence of the recomended resources requried for an event collector.

    Cheers
