Part of my verification checks include verifying log files on Linux machines. When entering a defect sometimes the log files also contain useful information. With Putty I create a remote shell on the machine, however verifying each log file with Grep, Tail or MultiTail is a tedious job.
Does anybody know of tools that allow following scenarios?
- Present the log files in an webapplication on my Linux machine.
- Present the Linux log files in a Windows application.
- Monitor automatically the log files while monitoring for a trigger condition that I can set, so that I get a message somehow. Since the types of logs are quite different, it is difficult to say exactly which trigger condition. A regular expression would be most flexible of course.
I had expected these would exist, but a websearch didn't return much beyond tail -f.
