Projects / logtail


logtail is an AJAX-based logfile download and viewing application. The logfiles are displayed like in the popular Unix "tail" program. Due to the AJAX approach, only the changed lines in a logfile are transferred from the server.

    Release Notes: The code was switched back to the MyFaces JSF implementation, so logtail now uses only free software. Logtail now allows you to highlight substrings of a logfile (for example, IP addresses). The code was refactored a bit. All configuration options were moved to one file. In web.xml, you now only have to set the path to the config file. A bug with the logline limiting was fixed. A bug where the last modification time of a file was always displayed in GMT time was fixed. Code was added to limit the loglines in a tailing window to a given amout.
