Logwatch

Logwatch analyzes and reports on system logs. It is a customizable and pluggable log-monitoring system and will go through the logs for a given period of time and make a customizable report. It should work right out of the package on most systems.

      Release Notes: Lots of incremental improvements and clean-ups and bugfixes were made. Significant improvements were made to the --range option (run --range help for info). New services were added: audit, sonicwall, and zz-network (which must be enabled in logwatch.conf to make it active). The --numeric option was added to inhibit certain DNS lookups.

            Hi Kirk,

            I am unable to access the site as well. Is there any way that

            you would consider hosting the site from a standard url? I

            think you really restrict the audience for this tool when

            people can't easily access the documentation for your

            project. I can even offer you a free virtual shared host

            account if that would help.

            How to add custom log?
            I have a firewall log made by my perl script and rotating by logrotate. I would like to add that log to the logwatch daily emails. How can I do so?

            What gives? The site has been unaviliable for some time. Kirk tried you e-mail @ kaybee and it failed as well. Is the project still on? Is everything ok?

            Site checked from multiple locations most of which were naked (not filtered - firewalled).

            Thanks!

            Re: Site down?
            I'm behind a firewall that blocks port 81. Is there any way the site could be moved somewhere else? How about sourceforge or savannah?

            Nope, still going strong, although I forgot to put our latest release out here. The site runs on port 81 due to my ISP's restrictions and my guess is your company blocks port 81 HTTP traffic.
