Log File Monitoring

By Seonix ·

I'm wondering if anyone knows of a customisable off-the-shelf product that will address the following requirements for monitoring of log files:
- Scan log files for a set of regular expressions
- Dashboard type display available for overview monitoring (display an alarm when a pre-defined error in the logs is detected)
- Basic reporting on stats and availability

I was thinking Nagios core with log file plugins may be an option but I'm wondering if there is anything else out there that may perform the desired functions.

Thanks in advance.

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.
