Common Log Monitoring Scenarios


  Monitor Specific Log Files in A Specific Directory for New Occurrences of Specific Strings 

Case Scenario:

Monitor all log files in the /var/log directory that have the word 'messages' in their names.  Check each log found matching this criteria for new entries containing the string 'ERROR'. 

If the number of entries found in any 'messages' file in the directory is less than 5, exit with an OK status.  If above 5 but less than 10, alert as Warning.  If above or equal to 10, alert as Critical.


[root@monitor jbowman]#   ./logxray  localhost  /var/tmp/logXray  autoblz  /var/log,include:messages  30m  'ERROR'  '.'  5  10  log_mon_3  -ndfoundn


Back to Top


Monitor log files for user-specified entries, then EXCLUDE specific lines from the results  

Case Scenario:

Within the last 30 minutes, find out how many lines in the log file [ /var/log/app.log ] contained both entries of "ERROR" and "Client". If any lines are found containing these two strings (ERROR.*Client), take note of that.

From the list of lines found, see if there are any lines that also contain the keywords "error 404" OR "updateNumber".  If there are, remove them from the list.  After removing them, show me what is left.  If the number of lines left is between 5 and 9, alert as WARNING.  If equal to or over 10, alert as CRITICAL.  If below 5, do not alert!


[root@monitor jbowman]#  ./logxray  localhost  /var/tmp/logXray  autonda  /var/log/app.log  30  ‘ERROR.*Client’  '(error 404|updateNumber)'  5  10  applog_tag  -ndshowexcl


Back to Top

  Monitor log files for certain entries - ALERT IF those entries are NOT found!  

Case Scenario:

For instance, within the last 30 minutes, if logrobot does not find at least 2 lines containing the words "Success" and "Client"  and "returned 200" OR "update:OK" in the log file, it must alert.  So in other words, the lines to search for MUST contain both words of Success & Client (Success.*Client) AND one or both of the strings returned 200 and update:OK.


[root@monitor jbowman]#  ./logxray  localhost  /var/tmp/logXray  /var/log/app.log  30  ‘SUCCESS.*Client’  '(returned 200|update:OK)'  2  2  expected_entry_tag  -ndnotfoundn


Back to Top

Monitor Log files for specific entries - When found, display all offending lines in alert  


This is particularly helpful in cases where you might want to see the actual lines that contain the patterns you instructed the tool to search for.



[root@monitor jbowman]#  ./logxray  localhost  /var/tmp/logXray  autonda  /var/log/app.log  30  ‘ERROR.*Client’  '(returned 200|update:OK)'  5 10  error_exceptions  -ndshow


  Scan log files for minutes, hours, days, weeks or months worth of data  


For instance, to pull out 2 weeks of information from within a large log file and to find out how many lines contain certain strings and patterns, you can run a command similar to this:



[root@monitor jbowman]#  ./logxray  localhost  /var/tmp/logXray  autofig  /var/log/app.log  2w  ‘ERROR|error|panic|fail’  ‘ERROR|error|panic|fail’  5  10  -foundn


Notice the [ 2w ].  And also, notice the strings being searched for.  I repeated the strings ‘ERROR|error|panic|fail’ twice because there is no need to specify different search terms to look for.  You don't have to repeat the first string.  You can just enter a dot in its place for the second string..i.e:


[root@monitor jbowman]#  ./logxray  localhost  /var/tmp/logXray  autofig  /var/log/app.log  2w  ‘ERROR|error|panic|fail’  ‘.’  5  10  -foundn


From this specific example, I'm telling logrobot that I care about EVERY single line that contains any of the keywords I provided.  The [ 2w ] of course means 2 weeks. 


 See below for the different ways of specifying the date range:

5m = 5 minutes (changeable to any number of minutes)

10h = 10 hours (changeable to any number of hours)

2d = 2 days (changeable to any number of days)

2w = 2 weeks (changeable to any number of weeks)

3mo = 3 months (changeable to any number of months)


Back to Top

Monitor log file for specific patterns, use user-specified strings to filter out lines to alert on:  





[root@monitor jbowman]#  ./logxray localhost /var/tmp/logXray autonda /var/log/syslog 60m 'kernel|panic' 'abrt'  3 5 syslog_check -ndshow



  1. Monitor the /var/log/syslog file

  2. Scan the log for any line containing "kernel" or "panic".

  3. When the above lines are found, from those lines select only the lines that also contain the pattern/keyword "abrt"

    • Ignore all lines which do not have 'abrt' on them

  4. If the number of lines found is less than 3, exit with an OK

  5. If the number of lines found is greater than or equal to 3, and less than 5, exit with a WARNING

  6. If the number of lines found is greater than or equal to 5, exit with a CRITICAL

  7. The name of this log check is syslog_check

  8. From the list of lines found containing 'kernel' or 'panic', exclude/ignore lines that have the string 'abrt' in them

    1. Indicated with the -ndshow

  9. While trying to scan this log file, if it is detected that the timestamp of the log itself is older than 60 minutes, abort immediately

Reason for Specifying Exclusions in LogChecks

Suppose you inherit a UNIX environment at a new job and you're unfamiliar on what to look for within the logs of a particular application, here's an idea; instead of worrying about what to watch for, why not force the logs to reveal their hidden contents?


In the example below, logrobot is instructed to search the entire messages file (denoted with the '.').  Then, it is to ignore every line that contains any one of these specific strings: 'nagios-primary nagios' OR 'not responding' OR 'synchronized to'.  Whichever lines are left after these THREE patterns are ignored should be alerted on.


The logic here is; if you can identify which entries in the logs are of NO importance to you, you can exclude them from being monitored.  Therefore, if a log file is stripped of the familiar and unwanted, whatever is left will be unfamiliar, thus requiring investigation.

[root@nagios-primary ~]# logrobot autofig /var/log/messages 24h '.' 'nagios-primary nagios|not responding|synchronized to' 1 5 -showexcl


Jun 13 13:40:04 nagios-primary abrt[8269]: saved core dump of pid 8128 (/prod/nagios-core/sbin/status.cgi)

What exactly can I do with LoGrobot?

If you can think up a log monitoring necessity, LoGrobot / logXray  can accommodate it.  Visit the following link for a full list of features available:

The massive log monitoring capabilities of logXray include, but surely aren't limited to:

  1. Monitoring & Alerting on the contents of system log files (errors, strings, keywords, patterns etc)

  2. Monitoring & Alerting on custom Application log files (mysql, oracle, apache/http and much more)

  3. Alerting if certain keywords / patterns ARE NOT found inside a specific log within a specific timeframe

  4. Monitoring & Alerting on the timestamps of log files (verify files are being updated regularly)

  5. Monitoring several log files at the same time - (very useful if you have multiple logs to scan)

  6. The capability to monitor both live and rotated logs to ensure nothing is missed

  7. Graphing the frequency with which user-specified patterns occur in log files

    1. Or graph for anomalies

  8. Monitoring & Alerting on the size of log files (ensure logs do not consume too much disk space)

  9. Monitor log files no matter how big they are (even logs that are GIGABYTES in size)

  10. Conditional Monitoring..i.e:

    1. Alert if a certain column of a newly added log entry has a value greater than or less than x

  11. View logs on all your servers from one Web Interface (avoid having to ssh to each host)

  12. Analysis - Easily identify which minute or hour of the day had the most entries recorded



Please note there are many additional features that haven't been listed on this page.  This is done on purpose.   If you have a particular requirement (which isn't listed), please contact our support team.  We are happy to provide details on what else LOGROBOT can do for you.  Chances are, 99% of the time, your requirement has been thought off by previous customers and provisions for it have already been built into the tool.

Is it Safe and easy to install LoGrobot / logXray?


With logrobot, there's very little you have to do.  We are very proud to announce that, unlike other tools that consider themselves "log monitoring", LoGrobot does not require users to install packages, libraries or modules that are unnatural to the UNIX system in order to get it work.  It just works!

Just drop it in the same directory as the rest of your plugins.  If using Nagios, define nagios configurations for it (in commands.cfg, services.cfg), set it up to begin monitoring your log of choice, and that's really all there is to it. 

When Nagios or Crontab goes to run your log checks, logXray will automatically configure itself in the default directory you specified and will from that point on begin to monitor any log file (or directory) you tell it to watch. 

Back to Top


How many lines of Code is LoGrobot composed of?

The lines of code that make up LoGrobot is about 200,000+.  Does it affect the efficiency with which it completes checks?  Absolutely not! logXray completes scanning of logs quickly (under 1 second).

Back to Top


How Big is the LoGrobot tool?

The current size of the premium version of the logrobot tool (logXray) is a little over 12MB. 

Back to Top


Does LoGrobot run locally on each host on which logs are being checked?

Yes, it runs locally on each host but can be easily controlled entirely from the monitoring master server.

If using LoGrobot to monitor your logs, simply place the tool on the host(s) on which you have log files to monitor.  You can send instructions to the tool from the Master server without having to log into the host on which the tool lives.

Back to Top


Is LoGrobot completely separate from the management front end (but can be controlled by it)?

Yes.  Originally, the LoGrobot log monitoring utility was built to work with Nagios. However, over the years, and due to varying customer needs, we have added a huge variety of different functionalities that allows it to fully function without Nagios. 

If you need LoGrobot to operate in a very specific fashion, do not hesitate to contact us.

Back to Top


How long does it take for LoGrobot to execute a log file check on a host? With what frequency does it run?

0.2 - 1.5 seconds.  It can be scheduled to run at any interval.



Back to Top


Can LoGrobot monitor log files that are over 1 GIGABYTE in size?

Yes. The size of a log file doesn't matter.  LoGrobot scans most log files from the previous point it left off.  If the log file is rotated, it will scan the unread entries from the rotated log, then continue scanning the new live log, thereby ensuring entries aren't missed.

Back to Top


Can I use LoGrobot to monitor a huge list of strings which won't fit on the command line?

Yes. If your list of strings is too long or too many to fit nicely on the command line, you can instruct LoGrobot to use configuration files instead.  All you need to put in the config file(s) is the list of patterns (one per line) you want to monitor.  Nothing more.

Back to Top


Can LoGrobot handle log rotation?:

Yes. LoGrobot automatically watches for signs of log rotation and when detected, it proceeds to scan the unread entries from the recently rotated log, in addition to monitoring the fresh live log.

Back to Top


How easy is it to setup log file checks / log file monitoring for log files using LoGrobot?

It is very easy to setup log file checks through LoGrobot.  Click any of the following links for more information:

You can literally start monitoring your logs within seconds of purchasing, downloading and unzipping the LoGrobot tool.  That is one of the many benefits of having a versatile tool that can act either as a plugin or a standalone system, without forcing users to break a sweat!

logXray was built specifically for use by the every UNIX user (i.e. system administrators, developers, dbas, monitoring engineers) - those who interact with the command line on a frequent basis.

And if you're a web interface (point and click) kind of user, don't you worry.  We thought about you too! Click here.

Some of my Log files do not have a date format.  Can LoGrobot monitor these types of logs?



Back to Top


After downloading LoGrobot / logXray will you assist me if I need any help?

Absolutely!  Support is already included in the purchase we recommend taking advantage of it.

Back to Top


Do I Have to use LoGrobot with Nagios, Graphite or Cacti or any specific monitoring application?

Absolutely not.  LoGrobot does not rely on any other application in order for it to monitor and alert on logs.

Graphing:  To graph log files, you will need to install Cacti, Graphite or a similar application.  LoGrobot can help with the automated install of Cacti and Graphite.  Contact us for more information!

Back to Top


If I want to install Nagios, Cacti / Graphite, will you provide help with the installation?

Absolutely! We have an automated utility in our arsenal called "kinglazy" which will install both applications for you.  The sole purpose of this tool is to make life tremendously simple for the stupendously lazy ones amongst us.  This tool will relieve you of the tedious responsibility of having to labor over complex configuration procedures. 

However, for the kinglazy tool to be of any use to you (as far as the Installation of the applications are concerned), all we ask is that you have a fresh install of Ubuntu (if you wish to install Graphite) or a fresh install of Red Hat/CentOS (for those wishing to install Nagios and/or Cacti). 

Once you have the freshly installed OS in place, all you have to do next, is put the shell script we give you on the new host and run it.  The script will do everything else for you.  No silly questions, No reading of confusing installation steps.  The script will handle all that for you!

Do you really have to have a fresh install of Ubuntu / Red Hat?  No. But we highly recommend it!

Back to Top


What exactly is the NagiosLogMonitor (nlm) tool?

NagiosLogMonitor (nlm) is the plugin that interprets the output produced by LoGrobot / logXray. 

Note, you do not have to have Nagios installed in order to use it.  You can run it through CRONTAB as well.

UPDATE:  If using Nagios with NRPE to monitor your remote hosts, the NagiosLogMonitor (nlm) is not needed.  This is because the latest version of logrobot (known as logXray) is built with its own interpreter which renders the old NagiosLogMonitor unnecessary.  If you are not using NRPE in your environment, and don't wish to set it up for whatever reason, then you can just use the free custom agent included with the logXray package.

How much is LoGrobot?

Please see the table at the bottom of the home page for a list of available options.

Back to Top


Are there any log monitoring situations LoGrobot will not be able to handle?

No.  LoGrobot / logXray has years of real life situations built into it. It has been heavily tested in QA, DEV, PrePROD and PROD environments. The tool as it is, is highly versatile and able to handle any situation you throw at it.


Back to Top


Is there a Money Back Guarantee?

Yes.  There is a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee.  If you're not satisfied for any reason with the LoGrobot tool, by all means, please let us know.  We stand proudly by our product and the time-saving, labor-eliminating services it delivers.

Back to Top


After downloading LoGrobot, can I submit requests to add custom / personalized features?

Absolutely.  We usually complete custom development requests within 24 to 72 hours of submission. 

If your request isn't of an urgent nature, please state so in your email. 

NON-Urgent email requests will be completed within 5 business days.  Contact us for more information.

I want to monitor log files on ALL my UNIX servers  - What must I do?

Here are the Simple steps you need to take for that to happen:

If using NRPE,

  1. Simply copy the logXray zip file you just purchased to the hosts on which you have log files to monitor

  2. unzip the file

  3. Put the unzipped tool into whichever directory you consider your plugins or scripts directory

  4. Define an entry in the nrpe.cfg file

  5. Restart the nrpe process on the host

And that's it


If using the Custom Monitoring Agent that comes with logXray:

Place LoGrobot on all your UNIX machines.  Installation is very simple:

  • Copy the file to each one of the hosts that you have log files on.

  • Unzip the file, then run the installation command.

Basically, here’s all you have to do on each of your UNIX Hosts:

  1. unzip ; cd logXray

  2. ./     /var/tmp/logXray     1040

Explanation of the parameters:

  • /var/tmp/logXray is the default location logXray will be installed.

  • 1040 is the TCP port number on which the MASTER server will connect to each remote hosts

  • will be the IP of the MASTER server (the primary monitoring server)

Installation Completed!

I want to be able to also VIEW log files on all my hosts from ONE Web Interface

LOGROBOT comes with a PHP Web Interface that enables you to specify which host a log file is on, what TCP port you wish to connect to on that host, and where the log file is located on the host.   The benefit of this feature is so that you DON'T have to manually log in to any server in order to view the contents of the log files on that server. 

This feature basically eliminates the tedious task of having to type passwords repetitively to gain access to several servers.  It eliminates the need to generate tokens or to tamper with ssh config files. None of that is necessary.  If you want to view a particular log file on host x, simply bring up the PHP Web Interface, type in the host name, the location of the log file, what port to connect to, then hit submit!
