glogwatch is a GKrellM plugin that alllows the monitoring of an arbitrary file, such as /var/log/messages, or a SNORT alert file, for changes. Once a change is detected, a timer is displayed showing the elapsed time since the change occurred. The timer is reset and re-armed when the user clicks on the plugin to view the file.
Sprog is a graphical tool that anyone can use to build programs by plugging parts together. In Sprog jargon, the parts are known as 'gears' and they are assembled to make a 'machine'. Gears are selected from a palette and dragged onto the Sprog workbench, where they can be connected together. Options can be set using a properties dialog on each gear. When assembly is complete, the machine can be run, reconfigured, or re-run.
Alerttail monitors a given file and executes a list of actions when a user-defined text pattern has been written to the file. For example, the user can pop up a GTK notification window when a certain message is written to a log file. Actions can be alerttail built in actions (GTK notify action, geoipLocalization action, or filtering text action) or a custom user defined shell command action. A Qt 4 GUI frontend helps with configuration.
Logsmith is an extendable framework for processing and editing small text files. It can be seen as a combined (but stripped down) version of UN*X tools like awk, sed, and grep with a graphical user interface. The intent is to give users the powers such tools provide without having to train them in their use. In order to archive this goal, logsmith can easily be customized through a plugin architecture to perform the commons tasks that a specific user base might require.
