The Syslog Management Tool (SMT) is a Web-based system that collects syslog messages using a modified version of Modular Syslog. It processes them for errors and generate alerts, launches programs, or sends emails based on user-defined actions. Since it uses a Web console, rules, hosts, and much more can be centrally managed. It is designed to be disaster resilient by distributing components throughout a global enterprise to survive Web console loss, database loss, or syslog server loss.
This project has been abandoned a long time ago. I am working to get it removed from here. Thanks to all of you who made use of it. I hope it solved problems for you.

Postgres has been MUCH faster than MySQL since 7.1. Go find independent benchmarks, many out there show that.

Postgres isn't hard to setup, it's just as easy.
