Description:

New: now with support for docking / systray icon!

* monitoring up to 10 local and (using ssh) remote logfiles
* displaying lines in different colors, depending on logfile
* filtering, separately for each logfile
* filtering uses regexps now
* displaying a message when a specified line is added to the logfile

(ssh-askpass needed for remote logfiles)

hint:
Add a child panel to the top edge of your screen, make it hide automatically and add logviewer to that panel. This
way, you don't have to rearrange your kicker and nothing's in the way.

Very nice app, try to keep it up-to-date!
It's the ONLY app that can get remote logs!! :)

Good program!

Could we have double click on log opens *show whole list"? Or possibly, just add a icon to systray, and on new message, it would blink, or make some notification of new message, and when clicked upon, would give "show whole list".

This is a great program, I don't need it much, but I love it anyway! Maybe this feature request would make it possible to run it all the time, in minamized screen realestate usage and still see it when there's a message to see.

Thanks for your consideration!

There is a very simple possibility to run LogViewer in the background permanently:

Just add a child panel to the upper edge of your desktop and add LogViewer to that panel. If you make it disappear automatically, it's not in the way at all and whenever you want to look at your system's logfiles, just move the mouse to the top of your desktop and you can see the last few lines.

That's the way I use LogViewer. :)

True, that's the way I use it too... But it would be more valuable to have it so it would make it known when it has a new message, instead of going up there to check any time I think I might have an available message. Just a thought, I enjoy this program anyway, but it would make it slightly more useful to me!

The new release supports docking into the systray. The number of new messages can be displayed directly in the systray, or the icon is displayed only when there are new messages.

Hope that does it for you. If not, tell me! :)

Yes, enable double clicking to open "show whole list" shouldn't be much of a problem. The next release will have that feature.

The idea is great and it could be the program that i'm looking for quite a while, but...

I don't like
* That it docks in the panel andtries to show log lines (the lines are always to long for this)
* The filter feature is not as good as it needs to be. It would be nicer, if i could give a regular expression and tell him that messages of this type should not be shown (shown or not be shown, should be decided by the user)

So this program is unusable for me.

Sorry
Oliver

Sorry that my program is unusable for you!
The intention was to write a small program that can display logfiles directly in the panel, for example to monitor hotplug / battery events on notebooks, phone calls on my desktop system, and it seems to work (except from some minor bugs that I work on at the moment :)) great for many people.
On the other hand I'm always glad about comments and suggestions, so tell me what exactly you want, maybe it's possible to include it

I really love this application and use it all the time to monitor some servers.
Ok, i had to rearrange my kicker a bit and that needed some time for me to get used to.
I would love to see the possibility to add more than 10 logfiles.
Also i could imagine that running logviewer in the systray would be nice.

But nevertheless it's quite usable for me.
Thanks a lot for this great work.

Hi!

I'll add the ability to monitor more than 10 logfiles in the next version of logviewer. The system that manages each logfile process is able to manage much more than 10 files at a time, so it'll be no problem. :)
