Log file watcher for X - Linux / Unix Administration

Hello group, I'm working on some changes in the XWatch [1] program (a log file watcher for X). Before I start to implement features other programs might already have, can you tell me what open-source graphical log watcher tools you know of? I'm not looking for `xterm -e 'tail -f /var/log/messages'` solutions or other programs that run in a terminal emulator under X.

    Default Log file watcher for X

    Hello group,

    I'm working on some changes in the XWatch [1] program (a log file
    watcher for X).

    Before I start to implement features other programs might already have,
    can you tell me what open-source graphical log watcher tools you know
    of?

    Hello Rob,
    There is a SystemWatch product by a company called OpenService, Inc.
    ([url]www.open.com[/url]). You can watch numerous log files from numerous Servers,
    including security log files from firewalls, in addition to system log
    messages, and even can be easily set up to monitor application log files,
    x-log files, or any other logfile you may have, and with detected conditions
    in such log files, can generate alerts and/or alarms based on status, and
    even take pre-programmed actions against these conditions.

    It's not open source - but a pretty damn good product for watching logfiles,
    and taking a proactive stance on knowing what's happening as it happens, as
    compared to finding out about it well after the fact, and after the cattle
    have already left the barn and barnyard.

    Hope this helps.
    Scott
