New features and improvements in KSS NG
A new generation with .NET
Kiwi Syslog Server NG is a new generation of Kiwi Syslog Server that implements the .NET framework for a more efficient and reliable user experience.
New web-based UI
The Kiwi Syslog Server NG UI has been overhauled and replaced with a new web-based UI. This new web-based UI removes the previous limitations for users with differing privileges and uses role-based access control. Both administrator and standard users can utilize Kiwi Syslog Server NG without requiring separate applications.
New customizable dashboard
Kiwi Syslog Server NG includes a new customizable dashboard. Users can configure the dashboard to focus information into one view with events, lists, and statistical charts. Users can add new widgets based on message volume, stacked message volume, severity distribution, top hosts, counters, and events.
The Events filters have been enhanced to improve user experience.
Migrate legacy rules to Kiwi Syslog Server NG
Migrate rules from your legacy KSS environment to KSS NG using a new migration tool available in Settings. To set up your migration, see Migrate rules to KSS NG.
Installation or upgrade
For information about how to install Kiwi Syslog Server NG, see the KSS NG Install Guide.
Kiwi Syslog Server NG is a separate instance from the legacy Kiwi Syslog Server. Even if you already installed the legacy version of Kiwi Syslog Server, you must install Kiwi Syslog Server NG individually.
