There's quite a useful/fun one for Apache called Logstalgia, it's an Apache access log visualization programme. It's not too feature-rich, but rather useful. Have a look here: https://github.com/acaudwell/Logstalgia and here: http://code.google.com/p/logstalgia/ Also, there's a tutorial by *NixCraft here: http://www.cyberciti.biz/open-source/use-logstalgia-...

You can put the chat-log in /tmp/chat.log and parse it with sed on the bash console: COLOR=32 COLOR2=31 cat /tmp/chat.log \ | sed 's/ \([[:alpha:][:digit:][:space:]@\.]*\)\!/ \x1b['${COLOR}'m\1\x1b[0m!~/1' \ | sed 's/!~.*: /\x1b['${COLOR2}'m: \x1b[0m/' Source for colorisazion: colourize the first part of each line

I use ccze to colorize my logs, not chatlogs though. I'm uncertain if there is a plugin for chats already present (counldn't find one at first search) but you can write your own, which shouldn't be too hard. ccze is used together with other tools on the commandline, e.G. cat like this: cat myLogFromYesterday | ccze -A It will print out a colorized log on ...

This sounds like a job for python + pandas. Free Easy to customise the readers Lots of manipulations, selections and graphing available Cross platform.

File access auditing is built into Windows but must be turned on and configured. Configuration is not trivial, however, there are many resources available to assist with this. Once auditing has been enabled for certain actions they will be saved in Windows event log.

If I want to figure things like that, I pick on GoAccess from the command line. It's amazingly fast and accepts input via pipe (of course also accepts a file name), so I can restrict it using grep to what I wish to see – e.g. grepping for data and hour to restrict analysis to that hour. On the command line, GoAccess provides a curses like interface managing ...

Found this free library on GitHub which I had used earlier. Log viewer converts the patch of text into individual blocks of json data for easy viewing of large logs of json files. Additionally the log viewer has various search functionality which is useful for such large logs debugging/extracting information. Software is distributed under MIT license. JSON ...

Another alternative i just found is lnav from lnav.org. Source is available on Github. lnav is a highly configurable log viewer packed with features. I has coloring, filtering, advanced querying, real-time updating and much more. It runs in a command window, unlike lograpp which makes it easy, fast and very comfortable to use. For me, at least, i work more ...

Your question is a vague, but I think I know what you are asking. You could set up an Apache web server to allow directory listing and set the log files to be in the served directory (default on Linux is /var/www). This would publish the log files publicly and all users would be able to download all files.

Use sed to insert a ; character just after the timestamp: sed -i -e "s/^\(..\):\(..\):\(..\),\(...\) /\1:\2:\3,\4;/" $FILE Open the CSV file with LibreOffice Calc, make sure to choose the right delimiter so that your timestamp is in the first column. Example: Convert the timestamp column from text type to date type, as described at https://unix....

Typically date, time, thread, etc. are at the start of a log line. Often, will either be a fixed count of characters, or delimited by some character like a comma or colon. Simply take your log file, and use a combination of cut sort and uniq. For example, here's a line from an Apache2 webserver log 172.16.130.165 - - [10/Jun/2019:08:13:00 -0400] "GET /...

Logstash is a tool to process and transform data from multiple sources. As you might guess from the name, is mainly used to extract and format data from logs and send it to a storage (e.g: Elastic Search). It is configured using a DSL with the following components: inputs: it could be a file in you example filters: for instance, grok, that allows you to ...

Splunk You can try Splunk, an advanced analysis monitoring software. Can be used as a tool for collecting, monitoring, visualizing and analyzing machine data from any source. It's a commercial one, but free trial version is also available. Splunk provides an API method for every feature. See: Managing Objects Tutorial. If you need help with it, ask a ...

Well, let me answer my own question. I just found https://lograpp.wordpress.com/ and it looks like an almost exact copy of Baretail. Last update was from 2013, but it's still good enough for what i am looking for. The only thing missing is the grep function. I contacted the author to see if he is willing to get this into the program.

I too had this question. After doing a lot of research and PoC work, our team found no better option than ELK stack. The same one which you have mentioned. It has lot of additional features. This is a great tool if you want open source.


1

ELK Stack or Splunk will do want you need and more. Splunk is free if your amount of data is less than 500MB per day. Of course, there is a bit more setup than a command line tool. They will definitly help if your last point is really important: Let me give it an SSH key and path and have it automatically go get the file without me manually copying it ...

The LogExpert log file viewer for Windows allows you to highlight lines matching regular expressions, which I use to dim out uninteresting lines that match the expression. It also has a Filter view which has an Invert Match feature, allowing you to show all lines except ones which match certain expressions.

Check out Log Transformer. It also has most of the features on your list including: Row Highlighting. Write regular expressions (or just simple text matches) and define the color and format (bold/italic/underline) you prefer. Advanced Real-time Text Filtering. Not only will it filter in real-time, it will filter as you are typing out your rule! It also ...

Take a look at lnav, the Logfile Navigator. It has most of the features you're interested in, as well as many others: Row Highlighting - You can set bookmarks on lines with the m hotkey. You can then move forward/backward through bookmarks using the u/U hotkeys. Bookmarked lines can also be copied to the clipboard using the c hotkey. Filtering - The :...

Take a look at Nagios (http://www.nagios.org/) for some of your goals. I am a sysadmin and I use it on Fedora (only for basic tasks here, but I think it's versatile and useful).

Mailchimp's Mandrill could do the transactional stuff for you, while you use Mailchimp for stats and maintenance of mailing lists, templates, mailings. Mandrill is Mailchimp's motor. My experience is that Mailchimp is strict in the e-mail addresses they allow you to use and bulk mail to. For example info@---company--- is not allowed as a recipient. It has ...

While digging around more I fell over Log Parser Lizard, it is essentially a GUI for Microsoft's Log Parser 2.2 and builds around using QUERY's to fetch the data you want, this allows you to also build graphs (Bar / Pie / Curves and so on) from the fetched data. Link to Lizzard log: http://www.lizard-labs.com/log_parser_lizard.aspx

You can use Splunk, in which you can centralize all logs you have, you can then perform crossed search. It's a freeware, a bit heavy but awesome. You can also use Lambda Probe, but it's more for global managment, not especifically for logs.

There is a Logstash, an open source server-side data processing pipeline that can transport and process your logs, events, or other data. Logstash is known for its extensibility, as there are hundreds of plugins for it. Check out the code at GitHub.

I seemed that there's no such tool out there, so I wrote my own: Live System Timeline Builder. It combines many NirSoft utilities and exports into Excel format.
