Projects / Lilith Logback event viewer

Lilith Logback event viewer

Lilith is a logging and access event viewer for the Logback logging framework. It has features comparable to Chainsaw, a logging event viewer for log4j. This means that it can receive logging events from remote applications using Logback as their logging backend. It uses files to buffer the received events locally, so it is possible to keep vast amounts of logging events at your fingertip while still being able to check only the ones you are really interested in by using filtering conditions.

Recent releases

  •  21 Apr 2014 17:37

    Release Notes: This release brings huge improvements to the usage of conditions, notably in"Focus" and "Exclude" in the popup and "Search" menu. You can save conditions using Cmd/Ctrl-I, and these will show up in the "Saved conditions" section of "Focus" and "Exclude". This will most likely be the last Java 5 compatible version. Development will continue on Java 8.

      Release Notes: This release makes Lilith compatible with the latest Logback 1.0.12.

      •  12 Mar 2012 00:50

        Release Notes: This release adds support for Java 7 suppressed exceptions. It also finishes support of cat and tail command line options for both logging- and access-events. A lot of dependencies have been updated, too, most notably SLF4J 1.6.4, Logback 1.0.1, and Groovy 1.8.6.

        •  02 May 2011 21:29

          Release Notes: This is an interim release because of a rather critical bug. Webapps using a ClassicMultiplexSocketAppender would not undeploy properly because of a dangling classloader. The original intent was to wait for Logback 0.9.29 due to the issues with 0.9.28 described in "Known Issues", but an ETA for the next release was unavailable.

          •  11 Nov 2010 22:10

            Release Notes: This version adds the ability to receive log4j and java.util.logging events over the Internet. It also offers new options concerning coloring of events matching user-defined conditions. A new "Find next/previous active" action jumps to any event matching a previously defined active condition. Additionally, Lilith will feel much snappier and contains many other small improvements.
