Trace.java is a package used by Java programmers, testers, server administrators and others to understand what happened during the execution of a program. It doesn't generate tracing statements automatically; programmers have to add them. Trace messages go into an in-core ring buffer, a disk log, or both. The disk log can be fixed size with backups. What amount of detail gets logged can be controlled at runtime or launch time. The ring buffer and disk log can be controlled separately. Different subsystems of the code can be controlled independently.
Chainsaw is a GUI log viewer and filter for the Log4J package. It listens for LoggingEvent objects sent using the SocketAppender and displays them in a table. The events can be filtered based on Priority, Thread name, Category name, or Message. It can also load events logged to a file.
miniLogger is a very small (4 classes and a 10KB jar) and easy to use logger. It uses a logging API that is a subset of JDK 1.4 logging but works on all Java 2 versions. It has been tested on Windows, Solaris, IRIX, and Linux for versions 1.2 and 1.3 of the Sun JDK. It supports logger control from the command line. Logger names are hierarchical separated by dots, and selecting any name automatically selects all names below. If logger_name is an empty string, it will affect all loggers. The loggers and level options are evaluated from left to right. It prints the thread name, source file name, and number line by default, and output can be redirected from System.err to file or any PrintStream. Finally, the logger hierarchy can easily mirror a package/class hierarchy or can be arbitrarily defined by the user.
Log4php is a PHP port of Log4j, the most popular Java logging framework. It supports configuration through XML and properties files (with the same structure as log4j) and custom Configurators. File, RollingFile, DailyFile, Echo, Console, Mail, PEAR::Db, PHP error, Syslog or NT events, and socket appenders are supported. Simple, TTCC, Pattern, Html, and Xml Layouts are supported. It also supports Filters, custom Levels, and Loggers. Internal debugging can be switched on and off. Log4php can be used inside a class or inside a main/sub function.
ErrorLog allows web developers quick and easy access to clearly formatted entries from the apache error_log file, viewable through a standard browser. It is designed with the developer in mind, with a focus on debugging CGI error logs. It by provides formatted HTML display of the log messages, merges multi-line entries while preserving whitespace formating, adds some highlighting for common elements (such as file paths, quoted strings, timestamps and digits) and transforms referrer strings into hyperlinks.
Impost is a network security auditing tool designed to analyze the forensics behind compromised and/or vulnerable daemons. There are two different kinds of operating modes; it can either act as a honey pot and take orders from a Perl script controlling how it responds and communicates with connecting clients, or it can operate as a packet sniffer and monitor incoming data to specified destination port supplied by the command-line arguments.
