nxlog is a modular, multi-threaded, high-performance log management solution with multi-platform support. In concept, it is similar to syslog-ng or rsyslog, but is not limited to Unix/syslog only. It can collect logs from files in various formats, receive logs from the network remotely over UDP, TCP, or TLS/SSL on all supported platforms. It supports platform-specific sources such as the Windows Eventlog, Linux kernel logs, Android device logs, local syslog, etc. Writing and reading logs to/from databases is also supported for many database servers. The collected logs can be stored into files, databases, or forwarded to a remote log server using various protocols. The old BSD Syslog and the newer IETF syslog standard (RFC 3164 and RFC 5424-5426) are fully supported by nxlog in addition to XML, JSON, CSV, GELF, and other custom formats. A key concept in nxlog is to be able to handle and preserve structured logs so there is no need to convert everything to syslog and then parse these logs again at the other side. It has powerful message filtering, log rewrite, and conversion capabilities. Using a lightweight, modular, and multi-threaded architecture which can scale, nxlog can process hundreds of thousands of events per second.
Release Notes: The newer IETF syslog standard (RFC 5424, 5425, 5426) is now fully supported. The I/O layer has been rewritten, which yields a 2-3x performance boost in some situations.
BBclone is a PHP Web counter on steroids which displays individual logs as well as aggregated data. It is a clone of Big Brother webstats, except that it is written in PHP and it relies only on flat files (no database needed). BBclone enables any Web site administrator to have a very precise view of who visit the website: OS, browser, date, referring page etc. Main features include reload resistance, hostname resolution, proxy workaround, and blacklist.
Release Notes: This release adds GeoIP detection for IPv6 and IPv4, a language code change to utf-8, new domains, and new detection for Browsers, OS, and Robots.
