I recently posted on Focus-IDS, loganalysis and the idug mailinglists to ask about what people are using to visualize their log files. Here is a summary of answers I got:
- One of the answers was Excel. Well, why not.
- Perl and MySQL, but completely manual approach.
- A paper on some techniques. I have not read it yet, but will post my comments when I did so: http://www.cs.unm.edu/~chris2d/papers/HPC_Analytics_Final.pdf
I got a couple more responses, but I want to verify and see what they are about first before I post them. Stay put.
