Logsend is a Unix daemon for email notification of log file changes, having 3 different backends. It watches the log files and periodically mails you the additions (being able to filter them). Logsend comes with a dialog-based configuration tool, as well as a live monitor that allows the users to watch the changes in real time.
Vee is a command-line blog tool that is very portable across Unix systems. It provides an interactive as well as a batch interface to maintain a log of entries. Formatting is done using a module architecture that allows a high degree of customization. There are minimal flags and no set up is required.
ramlog acts as a system daemon that maintains log files in memory instead of hard disk while the system is running. On startup, it creates a ramdisk, copies files from /var/log into the ramdisk, and mounts the ramdisk as /var/log. All logs after that will be updated on the ramdisk. When shutting down or restarting the service, it saves log files back to hard disk. This service drastically reduces the frequency of hard disk usage, which can be useful when the system runs on battery or uses flash memory instead of a hard disk.
adslometer is a script to log your router's connection information. It allows you to track line problems, analyze them, or get statistical information about your Internet connection.

ColorLogs is an output-colorizing Perl script intended to have command output piped through it to a terminal. It allows easy creation of new highlighting configurations using simple text matches, globs, or regular expressions. It works transparently even in interactive contexts with scripts that produce prompt lines and wait for user input. Patterns are provided for Ant and Maven output. This version started as a fork of v1.1 from resentment.org, but numerous improvements have been made since then.
