I'm working on a project which requires some auditing of read/write/modifications to various files. Additionally I must log ftp access, user logins, NTP/system time changes etc. Is there a nice tool for UNIX able to do all this and also allow me to export the data to a nice human readable format?
Right now I am monitoring file events using the standard UNIX audit tool with ausearch commands etc. This works OK, however it has a lot of guff and I don't particularly want to have to write scripts to parse all these files. I would also really like things to be written in a human readable format rather than have to parse it after the fact. Given our customer wants to be able to export these audit logs and read them with basic tools (web browser/text editors) i need it to be easy on the eye.
Any help on this one?
