I am looking for open source log aggregator. My requirements are very simple:

  1. Aggregate logs from multiple machines via SSH
  2. Allow free text / regex search.
  3. Allow realtime view of logs on a console screen

I am looking for free on-premise solution rather than a paid tool such as Loggly or papertrail

I have looked at fluentd , ELK but none of it satisfies my simple 3 requirements.

Any recommendations?
