Lazylogger is a small app to watch log files from different hosts in one place. Using the TUI, it is very easy to switch between log files. You can even split, horizontaly or verticaly, the current window and add more logs on the same page.
The configuration is based on a YAML file with the following structure:
defaultChunkSize: 40096 services: - name: admin-local host: address: 192.168.1.1 username: foo password: bar file: /home/foo/file-to-watch.log - name: tomcat jumpHost: address: aws-jump-host-address username: ec2-user key: /home/foo/.aws/key.pem host: address: 22.214.171.124 username: ec2-user key: /home/foo/.aws/key.pem file: /home/ec2-user/apache-tomcat-9.0.30/logs/catalina.out
Each entry in
services represent a log service.
Credentials for ssh are set in
host node. You can use password or key to connect to ssh.
Lazylogger will connect to port 22 only.
For cases when a jump host is required (e.g.
aws), you can add a
jumpHost with the same structre as
To use a configuration file, the following command must be executed:
lazylogger --config config.yml
Lazylogger will try to connect only when a new logger is created.
