Possible Duplicate:
Centralized Log Monitoring

is there any good solution for Ubuntu Server to collect and view all kinds of logs in one central web interface? Or which approach is used by professional administrators to handle logs? The only thing I found on Google is command line stuff or ugly Windows or Java applications.

Any help appreciated.

Regards Nils

"professional administrators" use command line. grep rocks! – Javier Sep 6 '12 at 19:24

Have you tried Splunk and their Splunk for *nix application? If your volumes are low it's free.

Looks good...since it is only for PHP Development Server there won't be more than 500MB logs. – Abenil Sep 6 '12 at 16:29
I have to admit I'm one of their top customers and utterly love the product for far more than just what you get free, an it can get very expensive if you log a lot, but I can't make any higher recommendation. – Chopper3 Sep 6 '12 at 16:36

The Best log analysis (free) available are ELSA and LogZilla.
