Log Tool 1.2.8
Logtool is a command line program that will parse ASCII logfiles into a more palatable format.
It will take anything resembling a syslog or multilog file (this includes syslog-ng, and probably most of the other variants out there), and crunch it into one of the following formats for your viewing pleasure:
* ANSI (colorized for easy "at a glance" viewing)
* ASCII (for e-mail'ed reports, and term's that don't support color)
* CSV (for importing into your favorite spreadsheet/database)
* HTML (for generating web pages)
* RAW (for no good reason)
It can be configured to parse the data any one of several ways, including stripping the host, and/or program fields, and modifying the time display format of the log entry's.
It's additional features include support for config file based regular expressions to do everything from excluding/including certain log entry's (using both in conjunction you can create boolean searches), as well as color coding the ANSI and HTML output.
And of course there's a config file so you can define your defaults once, and not have to remember those pesky command line switches.
What's New in This Release:
Now speaks/converts TAI64 dates (IE: D.J.Bernstien's multilog and friends), so you can | a multilog file into logtool and get the same results you would expect from a syslog file.
Now can optionally suppress duplicate messages.
Now can support and colorize unknown logfile formats
Now can do really cool things with snort and iptables syslog entries (ip->hostname resolution, special colors, and more!)
Now has special options for a syslog-ng formated log.
Code architecture is VERY VERY VERY changed and better.
· Light years better at error handling.
· Nice facility to write more modules like snort and iptables.
· Way more efficient (but not faster; too much new processing
And much much more!!!
