I'm trying to find the best Log File monitoring tool for Ubuntu 9.10 server?

Is there any web-based gui tool which could be operated by anyone, that monitor any log files?

I already tried splunk and felt it's a bit hard to operate and it's not a completely free tool

  • Would be helpful to know more - free or commercial, purpose of monitoring, examples of logs to be monitored, alerting requirements, storage requirements, number of servers, etc.

  • Which questions do you need to have answered by this tool? Commented Dec 31, 2010 at 15:39
  • Still no information provided. Marking this question down. Answers are being marked down without explanation too. Pretty poor.

I got a demo of this tool, called Splunk, at Infosec this year. It looks pretty incredible - a viable alternative to tools like LogLogic and LogRhythm.

Splunk is great for log analysis and event identification, http://code.google.com/p/logstash/ has a web ui and can aggregate multiple servers logs.
