GNU Xlogmaster

Monitors logfiles and devices

Xlogmaster is a program with a graphical user interface that lets you monitor your system logs in a convenient way. The logs can be displayed with filters for highlighting or hiding lines. The program can also be used to automate taking actions upon user-defined events.

Xlogmaster allows easy and customizable monitoring of your system by displaying all the interesting logfiles, devices (especially the /proc structure) and output from programs. You can use filters to modify data for better overview by raising/lowering/hiding/lines or taking actions like uniconify, creating alerts, or starting programs upon detecting certain regular expressions in the monitored data. Xlogmaster is GUI driven; due to the GTK+ toolkit and its full runtime configurability users can make xlogmaster appear however they want.
