    Log Analyzer tool for Jboss

    Its Me Newbie

      Hello All,


      We have the following lines in our server.xml which can help us track the user activities in our application:


      <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.FastCommonAccessLogValve"

                 prefix="localhost_access_log." suffix=".log"

                 pattern="common" directory="${jboss.server.home.dir}/log"

                 resolveHosts="false" />


      Now the new requirement if that there should be a provition to extract the user data from the log - to generate a report so that the user activity can be monitored. Is there any recomended log analyzer/ any other tool for this purpose.


      Thanks and Regards,

          I do this by splitting into different logfiles by having different appenders for the different logger categories.

          Some statistics are created by using unix commands like sed and awk

          But I think this will extreme depend on your requirements.


          For example there are implementations which write special log entries that can be easily extracted by grep and converted to csv format.
