I am looking for a LogFile Viewer


I try to learn more about Linux and installed a bunch a servers
like Apache,Sendmail,Samba,Bind,etc. I also installed Webmin which I use as less as possible.

The problem is now, every day when I boot my Linux box, I have to start 5 diverent Xterm to "tail -f" all logfiles and see how Linux performs.

Is there a software (WebFront or better GtK) where I can just keep track (realtime) of all Logfiles. That means when I activate a Webpage with some feature, I want to look at the Logfile while it is executing in order to find out where I can increase Performance.

I found lots a LogFile analyser, but the ones I found tell you how many errors,accesses,Warnings you got and not the actual Logfile entry.

Can some one give me a suggestion?

Thanx

maybe you just want something like "root-tail" this will monitor any number of files for chacnges and report on them, even colour code them for you if you want.. it displays on your root window i.e. desktop background.

I've been using root-tail for a few months, currently monitoring 4 logs all in different colors...it's not only useful, but quite pretty =o)

Webalizer is not what I am looking for. I don't care which .html site how many times was requested and how many hits I had. I really just want the raw Logfiles without analizing.
