Syslog4j provides Java components for client and server implementations of the syslog protocol (RFC 3164). UDP/IP, TCP/IP, TCP/IP over SSL/TLS, Unix Syslog, and Unix Socket Logging are supported. Advanced options are provided, including cryptographic message signatures and hashes. It is heavily tested with JUnit and Emma code coverage.
AppDynamics an application performance management solution for mission-critical Java applications. It can organize user requests and business transactions, monitor business transaction health, identify and diagnose slow requests, identify and diagnose errors, and drill down. It is built from the ground up for highly distributed service-oriented environments. It has fast root cause diagnostics at the method/class level, but creates no more than 2% overhead, even in high-volume production deployments. It can not only manage applications, but dynamically scale them in cloud and virtual environments.
