Better logwatch


Hi Ladies and boys

I am wondering if any of you is aware of any better logwatch than the default (for instance the one that comes with Redhat/Fedora distro's).

I've been googling about a bit but nothing jumps out.

What I want is a log watch that uses html format output and is able to use a SMTP server to log into with username and password and send the reports through there.

Does anyone know of such a thing, or should I continue contemplating writing my own?

Best regards

--output <output type>: Report Format - mail, html or unformatted#.
...but that's only in the regular logwatch (for instance the one that comes with Redhat/Fedora distro's).

If you mean "log into" as in some convoluted scheme to satisfy odd mcrft practices or use a "web mail" account you can't reach otherwise then by all means code it yourself.

Well...

I for one had the same question, but mine would be better phrased perhaps by asking if anyone had any pre built 'log skimming' plugins or scripts or whatever logwatch uses to do its thang. Specifically I would like to have summarized web hits and if possible connections, attempts and brief synopsis of ports or connection time or whathave you.


feel free to also tell me to code it myself, i am just hoping for some sort of a shortcut.

or

vi /usr/share/logwatch/scripts/logwatch.pl
and change
$Config{'output'} = "html";
