LogPP - Log PreProcessor
Logpp is a tool for preprocessing event logs and feeding relevant information
to other programs for storing or in-depth analysis. During its work, logpp
reads lines appended to input files (like tail(1) in -f mode), matches the
lines with patterns (e.g., regular expressions), converts matching lines
according to given templates, and writes the results to given destinations.
Logpp supports multi-line matching and several types of output destinations
like regular files, FIFOs, external programs, and the system logger.
Therefore, logpp can act as a filter in front of the more complex event log
analysis system and increase the system's performance by weeding out irrelevant
log data; it can work as a syslog gateway between the system logger and the
application that doesn't use syslog(3); it can convert multi-line log messages
to shorter single line messages, and accomplish other log preprocessing tasks.
Logpp is written in C and has been tested mainly on Linux, but should work on
most modern UNIX platforms.
