Actually we have ITSD syslog receiver which receive data from a lot of hosts/equipements (juniper, cisco, checkpoint, esx, clearswift, alcatel ....)
1 - As you see in my collector below, 61 hosts are sending events.
It would be fine to have something like a "IP Mapping" menu in the administration tab, to be able to map a specific IP to a hostname I will enter manually
Let's say :
172.23.33.5 <-> cisco_asa_datacenter
That will be more easy for people that are managing this ITDA to see some names instead of ip addresses especially when you have hundred of hosts.
2 -In addition, I would be also nice to create "host" groups.
If I have a syslog adapter with 120 hosts, I would like to select (check box in the Host menu) my hosts, and click on a "Create new group" button to have a better visibility.
For exemple, create "ESX Servers", "Cisco Routers", "Firewalls" ... that will include the selected hosts.
Actually, as a workaround, I have created several adapters on the same server : one syslog adapter "ESX_Servers_udp_515", one "Cisco_routers_udp_514", one "Clearswift_Appliance_udp_516" etc ..., that's not the best way, but that help to differentiate the equipment type, especially when you have hundred of elements.
