************************ *** Lograptor README *** ************************ LOGRAPTOR ---------- Lograptor is a search tool for system logs written in legacy BSD syslog format RFC 3164 and for IETF syslog protocol RFC 5424. The program can perform searches in syslog files like as the UNIX command "grep", but with the addition of some filters and parameters, useful to restrict the search field and retrieve the relevant informations from log files. You could specify parameters like hostname, application, date, time range, plus a set of filters on message data. Lograptor can also produce reports and publish them in a directory or send them by e-mail. The report may be a general or a specific report tailored for some accounts or hosts. The basic idea is to have a compact and highly configurable CLI tool for system logs analysis. The log analysis is based on application or device that originated the message, using a set of rules for matching and for report composition. Please send feedbacks for bugs, feature requests, suggestions, comments and criticism. Very special thanks to Konstantin ("Icon") Ryabitsev, the author of Epylog package, a software from whom Lograptor was inspired and from whom has inherited part of the source code. AUTHOR ------ Davide Brunato <brunato@sissa.it> SISSA - Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati/ International School for Advanced Studies Trieste, ITALY OBTAINING --------- https://github.com/brunato/Lograptor git://github.com/brunato/Lograptor.git INSTALL ------- Easiest way is to get and install the RPM/DEB package. To installing from source uncompact the tarball into a directory. Then cd into the directory and type: python setup.py build install Lograptor package and source requires python >= 2.6 (included python 3.0+). CONFIGURE --------- After the installation edit the files in /etc/lograptor to reflect your environment: /etc/lograptor/lograptor.conf Default main configuration file /etc/lograptor/report_template.html Report HTML template /etc/lograptor/report_template.txt Report plain text template /etc/lograptor/conf.d/*.conf Configuration files for applications For more info about main configuration file please see "man lograptor.conf". For each application a configuration file is needed. Logs of unconfigured applications are simply ignored by the program. For more info please see "man lograptor-apps". USAGE ----- lograptor [options] [FILE ...] lograptor [options] [-e PATTERN | -f PATTERNS_FILE ] [FILE ...] Lograptor has many CLI options. Some options are identical to those of UNIX command "grep". If FILE arguments list is empty the program processes the log files of the last 24 hours. For more information on usage options see "lograptor --help" or "man lograptor".

TODO ---- * Improve the anonymized output feature; * Introduce several different levels of details as a program option, in order to produce more or less verbose reports; * Try an integration with RFC 3161 timestamp services, in order to mark rotated log files and the produced reports; * Maybe examine the opportunity to translate a log format to another format.
