This is not strictly a Wowza question, but I’m giving it a try here.
I have recently installed the Wowza Dev edition on a linux server in a datacentre. I want to see what happens to the server by monitoring the traces that my app writes to the log. So basically, I need a live log monitor. Just to be very clear: I’m not looking for an analysis tool - I need to see what’s happening live.
I have tried mtail before (just using putty to open a shell and then run mtail on the wowza log), but that’s just spitting out the text. I’d like to have something that interprets the ECLF and does some highlighting, like errors in red. Preferably, the tool would have a remote client so that I don’t need to have a shell window and so that it can do more nifty things in terms of formatting than a text-based UI.
Can anyone recommend a free tool, preferably one that is in the stable Gentoo portage tree?
