I'd love to figure out how to consolidate event logs, IIS logs,
tracing logs, etc. . I was thinking about this today. What would be
neat is a program which would do the consolidation, then be able to be
queried by a program that would apply certain filtering and provide
the results as an RSS feed or some such thing.
Basically, what I'd like to be able to accomplish is to have something
monitoring one or more machines. I'd like to be able to say "ignore
this kind of log entry", "report this kind of entry" and most
importantly, "raise an alarm when this type of entry is encountered".
Some sort of dashboard could read the rss feed, generate statistics on
the state of the machine, provide all related information from the
variety of data that is available, etc.
Anyone thought about something like this?
