Tail server allows you to export the output of a "tail -f" command of a log file to a TCP port, allowing it to be viewed remotely with telnet. Tail Server provides a regular expression filter to include or exclude output view.
In several circumstances the need to access on remote time-varying log file leads to write some simple scripts.
These files generated by applications like syslog, http, news, etc. are often located on different machines.
System Administrator usually logon on remote system then type:
# tail -f filename
Tail Server offers the possibliy to map on Tcp/Ip port the output of "# tail -f filename" without (each time) logging on remote systems.
Also offers output regular expressions filter in order to include or exclude strings.
