My System status report is not showing any records?

My System status report is not showing any records, although my database contains records
from various Syslog sources?
Report" is shipped with "Windows Reporting
Module" of MonitorWare Console. As such, it only
generates the reports on Windows Records only!
So essentially what it does is that it checks for the infounitid of the records in the database
and if they are equal to 3 (which is the value for windows records), it shows them in the report and
rejects all others. If you send something via the Syslog protocol, its infounitid is 1 and hence
those records are not shown in the report.
The solution is very straight forward. You would have to send the records using SETP protocol. Using SETP protocol
is not only essential for this report but also for other Windows Reports as well. In addition to
that you need SETP to make "Views Module" also
work. This is because, if you send the records using Syslog protocol, it removes most of the
important information from the event: like event id, event user etc, which are used in the analysis
by MonitorWare Console.
So if you intend to use MonitorWare Console, then it's absolutely necessary to use SETP protocol
to get a good analysis.
to know the difference between SETP and Syslog Protocol.
