how to searching logs



i don't see any way of searching syslog. my syslog shows up in the main log tab of the main folder, but unable to do any sort of searching and the filters are limited. is it possible? or is this a feature to be added in the future? if so, is it on the next release? just need to know if i should wait for it or find a new product.

also it would be nice to create a custom report that could filter logs by specific keywords but i don't see a way to do it.

for example, i want to get detailed log of all network activity from a specific IP from netflow. or is this something i should use a sniffer for?

I'm sorry this is not possible. But we've put it on the wishlist.

best regards.
