Xlogmaster is software that lets you monitor everything that is going on on your system effortlessly. This software can monitor an almost infinite number of logfiles and all devices.

It allows reading logfiles, devices or running status-gathering programs, translating all data (if desired) and displaying it with filters for highlithing / lowlighting / hiding lines or taking actions upon user-defined events.

Xlogmaster can be configured to take almost any action you can think of upon certain events and helps you keeping track of everything and increasing system security. On a regular expression base, you can hide, raise or lower lines in the logfile and set triggers, which can launch scripts or pop-up a window.

 Xlogmaster 1.6.2

Free to download
