Project Description

The goal of this project is to create a tool to monitor changes in a log file or any text file between specific events in the system.

The specific events can mean any start of end of a process or many processes. Or such events could also be triggered by the user. Or we can set a timer at appropriate start and end times.

And during these 2 specific events some log files are assumed to be changed in the system.

The tool being developed will extract only the changed logs and display them on the UI.


Current Status

The project is still conceptual and nothing has been implemented yet.


Usage

The use for this project is specifically for someone who is learning some software programs and wish to know what all changes take place when a program runs and executes some tasks.

This project will also help to debug a software program.

And also will help to file bugs with precise logs.


Goal for this Hackweek

The goal for this hackweek is conservative.

  1. A simple GUI using perl-tk or python-django framework or similar tools.

  2. Provision to show parts of any textfile on the UI.

  3. Provision to set the starting point and ending point inside the logfile to acquire the logs.


Resources

The source code and documentation will be maintained in : https://github.com/sudarshannm/grab_logs
