About Log Monitor & Export

The term "log monitor" is a general term referring to different programs that all perform automated monitoring of various kinds, keeping track of changes to a file or file system. This is especially useful for administrators who have to stay on top of a large network consisting of databases, file systems, and many different programs running all at once. Even for single computer users, these monitoring programs can prove useful to provide a high level of control over an operating system’s activities.


Our log monitor also comes with built-in notification or even scripting capabilities. That is, in the case that anything remarkable is found in any of the logs that the program is currently monitoring, it could simply send off an email to the human administrator, or even perform a predefined response. This saves administrators a lot of tedious labor in looking through many different logs, and frees their time for more important and complex administration tasks.

Typical usage


A good example of a case wherein a monitoring program can save an administrator a lot of hassle is with a large file system open to many users. Keeping track of directory changes, new files, file name changes, and so on would be nearly impossible without using a specialized program designed to do so. By setting a few basic rules, for instance, restricting file types to particular folders, or restricting access to certain directories, an administrator can keep the entire system in tip-top shape.
