LogDistiller is a log files merge and sort tool. It reads log files, parses them into structured log events with attributes, then classifies them according to rules configured in an XML file. Classification results go into reports, which are published according to the rule configuration: simply stored in a file, sent by mail, or even added in a news feed. Some log parsers are included for syslog, Weblogic, simple line logs, Oracle alerts, and others. Log file parsing is designed to be easy to extend.
