LogAnalyzer is a Web front-end for syslog and other network event data. It provides easy browsing, searching, basic analysis, and some graphics. Data is taken from databases or plain syslog text files, so LogAnalyzer does not require changes to an existing logging infrastructure. Depending on the log data present, it can process syslog messages, Windows event log entries, and some more exotic things. Its troubleshooting support enables users to quickly find solutions to problems seen in the log data. LogAnalyzer was previously called phpLogCon, and has been renamed since v3.
ZedLog is a robust cross-platform input logging tool (A.K.A., a key logger). It is based on a flexible data logging system which makes it easy to get the required data. It features logging of all keyboard and mouse events, a replay simulation tool, logging to a file, and hiding in the background.
LoginIDS provides functions to analyze log files from different services in order to detect unusual login behavior. The normal user behavior is learned by analyzing log files and saved in a database. Logins are analyzed by time, service, source, and destination address. If a user's login is new or considered unlikely by LoginIDS, an alert is generated. Alerts can be handled by external scripts and viewed using the log file management system Splunk and the LoginIDS App.
Rsyslog is an enhanced multi-threaded syslogd. Among others, it offers support for on-demand disk buffering, reliable syslog over TCP, SSL, TLS, and RELP, writing to databases (MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, and many more), email alerting, fully configurable output formats (including high-precision timestamps), the ability to filter on any part of the syslog message, on-the-wire message compression, and the ability to convert text files to syslog. It is a drop-in replacement for stock syslogd and able to work with the same configuration file syntax.
Lilith is a logging and access event viewer for the Logback logging framework. It has features comparable to Chainsaw, a logging event viewer for log4j. This means that it can receive logging events from remote applications using Logback as their logging backend. It uses files to buffer the received events locally, so it is possible to keep vast amounts of logging events at your fingertip while still being able to check only the ones you are really interested in by using filtering conditions.
python-jabberbot is a Jabber bot framework for Python that makes it easy to write simple Jabber bots. One can use these Jabber bots to provide information about running systems, to make Web sites interact with Jabber-enabled visitors, or notify the bot owner about updates or changes that are monitored with custom Python scripts.
