Cisco doesn't have any free syslog server. Cisco Prime Infrastructure will act as a syslog server (among many other things) for thousands of dollars.

You can equally well run the free version of Kiwi syslog server if you like Windows and a GUI. It works perfectly fine - I have several customers who use it and are happy with it. The paid version is even better - it all depends on your requirements.

Syslog is one of the most common utility tools though - you can even run a simple syslog daemon on any Linux host and capture the data.

It's commercial software and it's from a well-known US vendor.

I know it works just fine and, given the nature of syslog, doesn't have the ability to affect any of your network devices or your security.

I can't say what your organization may or may not find trustworthy; but I have no problems with it nor do any of my customers (which include state and local government agencies).

Hi Marvin, 
Thanks for reply and your time. 

Is Kiwi Log server trust worthy I mean, our organization is very restricted about it. I have to take full approvals for this.
