The main purpose of LoFiMo is, as the name states, to monitor log files. It does this in real time, i.e. shows the contents of log files as they are changing. The user can connect to LoFiMo with a Web browser or use the console for plain text output. When using a Web browser, the output can be formatted with cascading stylesheets, which the user can define. Thus, it is possible to highlight certain log entries with different colors and fonts. It is also possible to play sounds or execute commands (send an email, play sound with a custom player, etc.) when a log entry matches a filter. LoFiMo can parse Apache style log files and syslog style log files. Among others, there are filters that can parse iptables logs and merge multiple log lines of Postfix into a single one.
SNMPTT is an SNMP trap handler written in Perl for use with the NET-SNMP/UCD-SNMP snmptrapd program. Received traps are translated into friendly messages using variable substitution. Output can be to STDOUT, text log file, syslog, NT Event Log, MySQL (Linux/Windows), PostgreSQL, or an ODBC database. User defined programs can also be executed.
ALF is a native logging framework for Java with the unique advantage of supporting automated method tracing. This platform-independent library allows developers to debug their applications quickly without adding any code. By simply adding an argument to the JVM, you will get immediate method tracing, which can be filtered by package or class and sent to the console or a file. You can also use the ALF logging library to integrate information, warning, error, or exception statements into the output.
NetUP UTM is a universal billing system for internet service providers of any size. Its modern approach to traffic accounting makes the system compatible with all popular platforms and network devices. Its key features include realtime traffic processing, Cisco Netflow and IP Accounting data collection, support for RADIUS authentication, and cross-platform compatibility. The core of the system is a smart and reliable accounting engine working directly with network equipment. It supports up to 100,000 users at a total speed of up to 3 Gbps. A flexible ratings engine and efficient administration tools make UTM a complete solution for IP/VoIP/WiFi/dial-up billing.
Wflogs is a firewall log analysis tool. It can be used to produce a log summary report in plain text, HTML, and XML, or to monitor firewalling logs in real-time. For now, netfilter, ipchains, ipfilter, cisco_pix, cisco_ios, and snort input formats are supported. It is particularly fast when asynchronous DNS resolution is enabled. The goal of the WallFire project is to build a very general and modular firewalling application based on Netfilter or any kind of low-level framework. Wflogs is part of the WallFire project, but can be used independently.
sysklogd-sql is a port of the sysklogd daemon that can log data to a MySQL or PostgreSQL database running either on the same machine or a remote database server. The SQL configuration is done in the standard syslog.conf file for easy administration and configuration. Also included is a set of sample PHP scripts to query the data from the syslog database. In a large environment, you can set up a central logging server, or configure a secure syslog environment that will make it very difficult to tamper with the syslog data.
The Userfriendly Iptables Frontend is used to generate optimized iptables packet filter rules, using a simple description file specified by the user. Generated rules are provided in iptables- save style. UIF can be used to read or write rulesets to or from LDAP servers in your network, which provides a global storing mechanism. Its aim is to be an easy to configure, human readable packet filter.
