I have multiple web heads running a stack containing Apache/mod_php/Magento/MySQL and more. Every time I need to view logs I find myself jumping on multiple servers to view logs in different files until I find the right one. Magento logfiles don't adhere to a specific standard, either.
Ideally I would like to have an interface similar to
tail -f that can handle changes to multiple files at once. Is there a general solution for this problem that can handle many different formats of logfile? What do you do to view standard and nonstandard log files on multiple identical nodes in a cluster?
