I have been using BareTail for low-footprint log reading, and it works wonderfully. In particular, I like that it can consume very large large files, detect changes to those files, all without consuming much memory at all.
I'd like to know if there are applications out there -- flash, java applet, etc -- that I could use in a web page to mimic this functionality in a program I'm writing.
What I hope to achieve is the ability to consume log files on a server inside the firewall and display them on a web page, in a semi-streaming fashion. As I said, I'd essentially like to have BareTail in a browser
