The main purpose of LoFiMo is, as the name states, to monitor log files. It does this in real time, i.e. shows the contents of log files as they are changing. The user can connect to LoFiMo with a Web browser or use the console for plain text output. When using a Web browser, the output can be formatted with cascading stylesheets, which the user can define. Thus, it is possible to highlight certain log entries with different colors and fonts. It is also possible to play sounds or execute commands (send an email, play sound with a custom player, etc.) when a log entry matches a filter. LoFiMo can parse Apache style log files and syslog style log files. Among others, there are filters that can parse iptables logs and merge multiple log lines of Postfix into a single one.

FTPL (FakeTime Preload Library, aka libfaketime) intercepts various system library calls and tricks programs of your choice into seeing a faked system time without having to change the time system-wide. This can be used for running legacy software with Y2K bugs, testing software for year-2038 compliance, debugging time-related issues such as expired SSL certificates, and using software that ceases to run outside a certain time frame. The faked time can be specified either absolutely or relative to the real current time, and optionally also affects file timestamps. The faked clock continues to run, but can optionally be frozen, slowed down, or made faster. A wrapper script "faketime" simplifies the usage, similar to tools such as fakechroot.
Log watcher is a PHP class that polls log files and takes newly added lines to send them to a given watcher email address. Although this class can be used to poll any type of log files, it was developed with the intention to overcome a limitation of the PHP error trapping system that is not able to capture certain types of errors during script execution, like script parsing errors or form file uploading failures. It is meant to be used from cron-like task schedulers to poll log files regularly. The email notification message can be composed from text templates. The message delivery function can be replaced by custom functions like the urgent mail function that can be faster for delivering critical messages.
