Lilith is a logging and access event viewer for Logback, log4j & java.util.logging. It has features comparable to Chainsaw for log4j. This means that it can receive logging events from remote applications using Logback as their logging backend


  • receive events using Logback SocketAppender
  • receive events using Lilith MultiplexSocketAppender
  • receive events using LOG4J SocketAppender
  • receive events using java.util.logging SocketHandler
  • receive events encoded in XML
  • receive events encoded in JSON
  • monitor Lilith log files for changes
  • import java.util.logging xml files
  • import log4j xml files

User Reviews

  • Bare breasted lady on the splash screen makes application unusable in a production environment.

  • lilith works perfectly.

  • Very nice app :)

  • I'm really impressed. I really would like to continue its use. Therefore it would be great to explicitly list runtime dependencies for non maven users, i.e. to use the de.huxhorn.lilith.logback.appender.ClassicMultiplexSocketAppender the following libaries are required at runtime (hopefully complete, however I experienced no problems so far): de.huxhorn.lilith.logback.appender.multiplex-classic-0.9.41.jar de.huxhorn.lilith.logback.appender.multiplex-core-0.9.41.jar de.huxhorn.lilith.sender-0.9.41.jar de.huxhorn.sulky.codec-0.9.14.jar de.huxhorn.lilith.logback.logging-adapter-0.9.41.jar de.huxhorn.lilith.logback.classic-0.9.41.jar protobuf-java-2.3.0.jar Furthermore it is not clear whether these runtime libs are licensed less restrictive than the lilith application (e.g. LGPL) so that it is possible to ship these libs with a LGPL or even commercial application. Last not least, to use the "Client-side" appenders as ClassicMultiplexSocketAppender in OSGi environments, it would be helpful to add OSGi meta tags (as sl4fj and logback do) at least to the libs required at runtime by "calling" applications.

  • Great product with very useful features such as filtering/searching for both files and socket appenders.
