Network Analysis

In this category Adiscon offers two products:

1. MonitorWare Console: It is for log viewing and analysis. It works together with the other members of Adiscon's MonitorWare line of products to provide a centralized view of the system-generated events data. Current version of MonitorWare Console is shipped with 15 built in reports.

2. Monilog: It is an analysis tool for Windows Event logs collected by EventReporter and generates the report on gathered data. It is similar to MonitorWare Console but generates only one report.
