Anteater is a log analyser for MTA logfiles (such as those produced by sendmail and postfix). The tool is written in 100% C++ and is very easy to customize. Input, output, and the analysis are modular class objects with a clear interface. Currently, there are modules for reading the syslog format of sendmail and postfix that do up to eight useful analyses and write the result in plain ASCII or HTML, to stdout or to files.
pflogsumm.pl is designed to provide an over-view of postfix activity, with just enough detail to give the administrator a "heads up" for potential trouble spots. Reports includes: Total number of messages and bytes; Hosts/Domains; senders and Recipients; per-hour traffic reports; summaries of warnings, fatal errors, and panics; and so on ...
popexec is a program for Unix/Linux which checks a POP e-mail account and then runs a program whenever new e-mail arrives. It can also optionally run a program when it sees that you no longer have new e-mail in your POP box. Examples are included which show you how to: Write "You have mail" or "You have X new messages" to a terminal, make a terminal beep, play an audio file, pop an X window onto the screen, make your keyboard LEDs blink, change your desktop background.
Lire is a pluggable log analyzer. It has analyzers for over 25 log file formats, ranging from Apache WWW log files to iptables firewall logs and CUPS printing logs. Reports are generated in 9 different output formats, ranging from Excel 95 to PDF to HTML, optionally with included graphs.
qmailmrtg7 utilizes qmail and tcpserver/multilog's extensive logging capabilities to create mrtg graphs. It efficiently processes the logs (large sites with historical logs of over 100MB can be processed in a few seconds). For qmail it graphs remote/local delivery concurrency, queue size, messages process, bytes transferred, and success/failure delivery status. For tcpserver services like SMTP and POP, it graphs total connections and concurrency. For djbdns, it can graph dnscache and tinydns activity. For ClamAV, it graphs viruses found. For spamassassin it graphs spam emails found.
AntiVir Update Announcer is a Perl script can be used in middle-sized networks to inform users about updates to the H+BEDV AntiVir software via email. It uses the same information file as the original Internet update program. It alleviates the need to run the update program periodically just to discover whether any updates are available. Optionally, this script can download the new update file and store it to an SMB share or send it as an attachment to the announcement mail. If used correctly, this will easily increase your network's virus protection.
Mail2sh makes it possible to carry out shell commands by email. Email is sent to a particular user on your host and the commands will be carried out if the user and password given matches ones in /etc/passwd. Commands are executed with the user's privileges, and combined with a PGP module ensures a certain level of security for use. Note that the system is not natively encrypted, so use of an encryption mechanism is highly recommended for security reasons.
