This article provides brief information and steps to avoid Kiwi Syslog performance issues and database corruption with web access.


  • Kiwi Syslog versions earlier than 9.4.2


Reconfigure the Kiwi Syslog Server to limit what it inserts into the Kiwi Web Access database to syslog message with a priority of Warn or higher. As such, the SQL CE database will grow at a manageable pace.

  1. Log in to Kiwi Syslog Web Access.
  2. Go to the Admin tab. Under Database Maintenance decrease the maximum size of the database.
  3. Go to the Settings page. Under General Settings decrease the number of rows per page to 25 rows or less.
  4. Decrease the amount of data you are inserting into the database by adding filers to the same rule that contains the Log to Kiwi Web Access Action.
  5. Decrease the database size.



  • Log device syslog messages to separate directories based on the source.
  • Reduce the number of Rules/Filters/Actions you had, as some proved to be unnecessary.


Note: If you are running on a version earlier than 9.4.2, there is a known issue about CPU usage and session timeout and it is fixed in Kiwi Syslog Server 9.4.2. See the Release notes for version 9.4.2 for more information.
