Log management


I've got a CentOS server setup as a syslog server, works great. Now i'm looking for a good program that i can use to view these log files and possible allow me to sort, show graphs, etc... Anyone know of a good one?

Well, RHEL/CENTOS does come with a Log Viewer: http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...s-viewing.html .
Don't know if it'll do everything you want though..

Hi. Came across this post. I'm just setting up (r)syslog, and need to figure out how to set up failover.

May I ask how you did this? Please read my post (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...3/#post3423951) and leave a comment there.

That kinda works, its good but would like something that i could check remotly like via a web page or email, etc..

I dont have a failover sever setup, not sure how easy that would be. As far as i know when a client sends some logs, it doesnt check to see if the syslog server is online, it just sends it. I'm not sure if you could create a script that would force the client to send the log to 2 servers, or to keep it locally incase the server went down. I would then (if a script is possible) setup a monitoring program, like nagios that would monitor your syslog server and inform you of any issues.

Thanks. rsyslog actually do have support for clients using TCP to send syslog messages, and if the syslog-server (i.e. loghost) is down, the messages are spooled on disk until the syslog-server is back up. Just as you know.
