php syslog viewer is a free web application written in PHP for viewing and searching system logs stored in a MySQL database.
Good system administrators review the logs from each system they administer. As the number of systems gets bigger, this becomes a more complex and time consuming task. Eventually the system administrator would like a way to combine the log messages from all of the systems into one central location, but that is not enough. Without a good search facility, finding the information the system administrator needs is like finding a needle in a haystack.
This is where php syslog viewer comes to the rescue. Using a few common Free Software tools (syslog-ng, stunnel, MySQL, apache, and php), php syslog viewer provides a total solution for centralized logging and log management. Client systems send their log files to a server which stores them in a database. php syslog viewer provides the system administrator with a view into that database. php syslog viewer also includes a tool for optimizing searches and archiving older data so that it takes up less room on the disk.
