lograptor - a command line tool for system logs

Lograptor is a GREP-like tool which provides a command-line interface for processing system logs.

Regular expression searches can be performed together with filtering rules and scope delimitation options. Each search run can be sent to an output channel (stdout, e-mail, file) and can produces a customizable report.

The program can parse logs written in RFC 3164 and RFC 5424 formats. Lograptor requires Python >= 2.7, and is provided with a base configuration for a set of well known applications. You can easily add new applications or new rules to match other unparsed logs.
