What gui to use for syslog-ng logs?

+5 votes

I have an environment in which I would like to implement a GUI for parsing syslog-ng logs from operating system, application servers and databases. I've heard that Splunk is a good tool but its quite hard to learn.

Are there any valuable alternatives? What are you using and why?

I do not think Splunk is hard. The only downside is that you have to pay money if you index more than 500MB of logs a day.

How many logs/day (in MB) are you expecting?

In GB, the paid license is an option ;)

I've used syslog-ng for some time. I like it. I have a project in which I need to choose a central logging solution. What are your experiences with rsyslog? Is it more complex to setup than syslog-ng? Or maybe does it have some additional features?

I am also thinking about using some gui tools for log parsing and graphing. May be proprietary/paid. Any suggestions?

I am running MySQL 5.5.31 on FreeBSD 9.2. I have a web server with a miss-configured service that generates faulty connections. After a while, MySQl blocks any connection from the web server.

At some stage, I had set-up a script that would browse syslog log and look for a string like "Host 'xxx' is blocked because of many connection errors; unblock with 'mysqladmin flush-hosts'" and would then issue a mysqladmin flush-hosts.

But after an upgrade, MySQl stopped reporting to syslog. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to figure out how to forward mainly the Error Logs from an Apache for Windows installation over to a remote syslog server. All documents I can locate show how to do this if Apache is running in Linux. Does anyone know how to make this happen in Windows?
