    • feature added to remove a particular MAC address, or tag it as unauthorized, etc,

      I think you would find people like it if if a feature were added to remove a particular MAC address, or tag it as unauthorized, etc, so that it would generate a detection of some sort every time?

        • Add JSON Format Option to Syslog Action

          I'm sending Eventlog from EventSentry to a remote Syslog server that configured with ELK(Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana).

          If it can sent syslog with JSON format, it would be easier to coordinate with ELK.

            • Add option for 3rd SMTP address.

              I have 3 regional SMTP groups and recently my security team stopped me from sending SMTP alerts to the wrong region. There are only 2 options currently. I'd like to see a 3rd added.

                We are looking into this, however it may require a redesignof the interface as to not clutter the already busy SMTP action dialog further. We understand the need to have a 3rd SMTP server but please understand that it does not seem to be a common request.

              • Provide the ability to adjust the scale of performance graphs in your WebReports

                At present there does not appear to be a means to adjust the scale of graphs based on performance counters in your WebReports. For example, may Windows performance counters measure values in bytes/sec; however when dealing with large numbers it would be very handy to adjust the scale to show the graph as kilobytes/sec.

                • Support Import of System Center Management Packs

                  With EventSentry, we have to manually set up include and exclude filters. With Microsoft's System Center, vendors do this work for us and release management packs. It would be really cool if EventSentry was able to import those management packs and create include and exclude filters based on the data.

                  • Make the Filter Notes Field More Usable

                    The Notes field for a filter is only two lines and it doesn't accept line returns. Please make this larger and allow use of the enter key. I'd like to include verbose notes in a filter explaining why the filter was added and possibly even providing a an example of a sample event. Sometimes it is not clear why an exclusion filter is in place. Being able to document this in the notes field would be useful.

                    • Update Maintenance Schedules to Prevent Alerts from Other Computers

                      Setting a maintenance schedule will cause heartbeat notifications (and optionally all notifications) about that server to be suppressed. However, if I reboot a server with a maintenance schedule set, it's still possible for other related servers to generate events.

                      It would be nice if maintenance were tied in so that alerts about events on other servers could be suppressed if they relate to the server with a maintenance schedule set.

                      Example: I need to work on a file server. I add a maintenance schedule for the server, and then reboot it. I will then get 20 alerts from other servers…

                      • Allow computer groups names to be used as variables so that they can be used in filters.

                        What I mean is that I'd like to create an include filter that sends an email to an SMS provider but I want the filter to be specific for several computer groups. Rather than create a custom variable that I have to edit each time I add a monitored server, I'd like to be able to use a computer group name as a variable so that it updates the variable for me.

                        • Bring back the report option which shows clients missing a pience of software.

                          Prior to the move away from IIS there was the option in the software inventory reporting to show clients that did not have a piece of software installed as well as ones that did. Would like to see that option again.

                          • Add Ability to Sort Performance Counters

                            In System Health packages, there is a grid of performance counters. It appears that the counters are listed in order of addition. Several times, I have hit the "-" button thinking it would move an entry down and instead the entry was deleted.

                            Please consider adding a way to change the order. Additionally, a right-click "Sort A-Z" option would be nice.

                            Thanks.

                            • Allow for multiple group membership for organizing devices in web reports for multiple technical staff

                              Allow for multiple group membership with no policies attached for organizing devices in web reports for multiple technical staff. Example: One person and 5 specific servers, and only wants to see those 5 in the web reports. The current multiple dashboards works, but is time consuming to setup for companies with a large technical staff.

                                • Improve Performance of Internal Event Log Viewer

                                  Some of the systems we monitor with EventSentry are over slow WAN connections. It can be painful to load up the event log of one of those servers in EventSentry's internal event viewer.

                                  This is understandable, given the speed of the WAN link. But, the way EventSentry operates can make things worse.

                                  Here is my typical workflow:

                                  1. Open remote event log in EventSentry.
                                  2. Wait several minutes...
                                  3. Run "Test against Filter Rules" on an event.
                                  4. Wait several minutes for event log to reload.
                                  5. Use "Add Include filter" or "Add Exclude Filter" to create a filter for…

                                    I would like to be able to group "Production" servers and "Developement" servers under a common group of "Servers". That way I can apply some filters to all servers and other filters just to production servers for instance.

                                    • Web based GUI for Management Console

                                      Like Web report, I think web-based Management Console is easy to use.

                                        Using es_db_purge.exe, I would like to be able to delete ophaned computers and computers that have not been updated for a certain amount of time.

                                        • Make "Rescan after Reboot" a computer group setting rather than a global setting.

                                          Change the scope of the setting from global to group.
