  • Apache::Logmonster
    A tool to collect log files from multiple Apache web servers, split them based on the virtual host, sort the logs into cronological order, and then pipe them into a log file analyzer of your choice (webalizer, http-analyze, AWstats, etc).
  • ApacheTop
    ApacheTop watches a logfile generated by Apache (in standard common or combined logformat, although it doesn't (yet) make use of any of the extra fields in combined) and generates human-parsable output in realtime.

  • DULog

  • Fail2ban
    Fail2ban monitors log files and temporarily or persistently bans failure-prone addresses by updating existing firewall rules. The software allows easy specification of different actions to be taken such as to ban an IP address using iptables or hostsdeny rules, or simply to send a notification email. It supports many services, and configuration can be easily extended for monitoring any other ASCII file. All filters and actions are given in the configuration files, thus fail2ban can be adopted to be used with a variety of files and firewalls.
  • Fido
    Fido is a multi-threaded file watch utility. It can be configured to look for multiple things inside multiple files. When it matches a user-defined pattern, fido runs a user-defined command.
  • filewatcher

  • Geolizer

In fact, if you disable DNS reversal on your HTTP server, it will work faster and your stats get more accuracy when processed by patched Webalizer
  • glogwatch
    glogwatch allows the monitoring of an arbitrary file, such as /var/log/messages or a SNORT alert file.
  • glTail.rb
    glTail.rb allows you to view real-time traffic, data, and statistics from any log file on any server with SSH, in an intuitive and entertaining way using Ruby, net-ssh, and OpenGL. It includes parsers for Apache Combined, Rails, IIS, Postfix/spamd/clam), Nginx, Squid, PostgreSQL.
  • Glug

  • gwatchlog

  • ippl

  • KDE LogViever

  • klogview
    klogview is a KDE utility for viewing log files in real time, like tail -f.
  • kwatch
    a port of kwatch to KDE2. Basically it is a tail -f with a graphical KDE2 user interface for watching log file
  • lnav
    The Logfile Navigator, lnav for short, is a curses-based tool for viewing and analyzing log files. The value added by lnav over text viewers / editors is that it takes advantage of any semantic information that can be gleaned from the log file, such as timestamps and log levels.
  • LoFiMo
    LoFiMo is used to monitor logfiles in real time. The output is presented via a web interface and optionally on the console. Using the web interface it is possible to monitor log files from a remote machine. LoFiMo can be used to colorize the log entries using filters. filters can also be used to reformat log entries, hide log entries or play sounds or execute commands when certain log entries are read.
  • Log Toolkit
    provides a set of logfile processing tools: - Convert from W3C to ELF (extended log format) - Convert from Netscape/iPlanet to ELF - Strip corrupt logfile lines - Sort logfile lines by date - Filter lines by URI prefix or result code
  • Log Watcher

  • Logapp
    Logapp is a wrapper utility that helps supervise the execution of applications that produce heavy console output (e.g. make, CVS, and Subversion).
  • Logback
    Logback is intended as a successor to the popular log4j project, and was designed by log4j's founder, Ceki Gulcu. The basic architecture is sufficiently generic so as to apply under different circumstances. It is divided into three modules. The Core module lays the groundwork for the other two modules. The Classic module can be assimilated to an improved version of log4j. It natively implements the SLF4J API so that you can readily switch back and forth between logback and other logging systems, such as log4j or JDK14 Logging. The Access module integrates with Servlet containers to provide HTTP access log functionality. You can easily build your own modules on top of the Core module.
  • Logcheck
    Logcheck is a simple utility which is designed to allow a system administrator to view the logfiles which are produced upon hosts under their control. It does this by mailing summaries of the logfiles to them, after first filtering out "normal" entries.
  • Logdigest
    Logdigest mails interesting lines from log files to the system administrator. Non-relevant lines are filtered out by customizable regular expressions. Logdigest comes with a set of such regexps to provide a good starting point.
  • LogDog
    LogDog is a daemon for monitoring system log files and emailing administrators.
  • Logfmon
    Logfmon monitors a set of log files and processes messages based on a set of regexps. When a message matches, a command may be executed or the message may be ignored. Messages that are unmatched are batched together and emailed every so often.

    LogMiner is a powerful log analysis package for Apache (or other Web servers using the "combined" log format). It can produce detailed reports about visits, hits, traffic, navigation paths, browsers and operating systems used by users, and so on.
  • logplex
    logplex is a simple application that allows you to multiplex logs files together into a single log file which you can then run swatch against.
  • Logsurfer
    Logsurfer is designed to monitor any text-based logfiles on your system in realtime.
  • logtail
    logtail is a logfile download and tailing application. It uses AJAX to update the tail-windows. The AJAX approach transfers only the added lines from a logfile over the wire.
  • Maillog View
    Maillog View is a Webmin module that allows you to easily view all your /var/log/maillog.* files. It features autorefresh, message size indication, ascending/descending view order, compressed file support, and a full statistics page.
  • MultiTail
    MultiTail lets you view one or multiple files like the original tail program. The difference is that it creates multiple windows on your console (with ncurses). Merging of 2 or even more logfiles is possible. It can also use colors while displaying the logfiles (through regular expressions), for faster recognition of what is important and what not. Read more
