logwatch-citadel

This script must be used with Logwatch. Then it will produce summaries, reports and statistics regarding the operation of citadel.

This is the first stable version, but you will probably still see a lot of unmatched entries. The script supports three detail levels: less MED (5), greater than MED (5) and greater or equals HIGH (10). More detail levels are planned for one of the next versions.

This citadel script is also part of the Logwatch project. The newest version is available in the logwatch SVN repository. But from time to time I will publish stable version also on this side.

logwatch-syslog-ng

These script must be used with Logwatch. Then it will produce summaries, reports and statistics regarding the operation of syslog-ng.

The output produced by the logwatch-syslog-ng script is user-configurable in its detail level. It ranges from showing only failures to a detailed summary report.

Version 1.2 fixes a bug with more than one log source. It recognises now the dropped and suppressed statistics in the Log Statistics section. The printed numbers in these two sections may not be accurate. Unfortunately I'm missing log sample for these two cases. I would appreciate it, if somebody can send me some.

This syslog-ng script is now part of the Logwatch project. The newest version is available in the logwatch SVN repository. From time to time I will also publish stable version on this side.


These script is tested with syslog-ng versions 1 to 3. Version 3 works only with stats_level(0). If you send me some syslog-ng version 3 log samples I might add much more support for it.
