New log notifier and parser

DULog is a new log notifier and parser that periodically tails system logs, parses the output to present it in an easily readable format (parsing modules currently exist only for GNU/Linux), and mails a final report to the administrator. It can run daily or hourly. DULog is written specifically for large clusters where many systems (50+) log to a single loghost using syslog or syslog-ng. It can be used on standalone systems, but other packages (ie logwatch) are probably more suitable for such purposes. As of May 8, 2003, the DUlog project has been superseded by the 'epylog' project. While the information on this website remains current, the maintainers suggest you refer to epylog as it will be an ongoing project.
