Lightbulb LILA - Live Iptables Log Analyzer


When I was looking for a tool that analyzes iptables log files I couldn't find anything suitable for me. So I wrote a python script that does the job.

Now I'd like to have some feedback (questions, comments, bugs, wishes etc.). I'd be happy if you give it a try and tell me whether you like it or not.

You have to set up some things manually. You need a MySQL table for example. And if you want to have reverse DNS (can be disabled) it is greatly recommended to install pdnsd as a local dns (caching) server for better results. (easy setup). If you do, it will take some time (depending on the log size) to receive the hostnames. The tool saves the DNS hostnames, so next time an identical IP is found, the lookup will be instant.

All needed options can be configured in the config file or via command line parameter.

A feature overview and more detailed information is included in the tarball README and INSTALL file.


Thanks for your time.

It is more than one year since my last post now. I finally released LILA 1.0 and would be happy if you take the time to have a look at it.

All you must know about LILA is contained in the extensive PDF documentation, I've created. It contains a feature overview, a description and a "demo part" where you can see LILA in action (screenshots). Of course it does also contain install notes and a changelog.

The pdf is contained in the tarball at (New URL)
And here you can download it directly:

I hope to hear back from some of you!
