I like this utility and the ability to view so many different types of log files at once. It would be nice if we had the option to run it from the system tray since it updates in real time and maybe add some filters or triggers that would allow it to flash or signal us when certain criteria are met. For example, if someone attempts to login as root and fails.

Also, you have done a great job to include a lot of different types of log files to look at and the ability to add multiple log files under Kernel, Boot/Authentication, etc, but a Miscellaneous would be useful when a logfile may not apply to these. For example, I have my router forwarding connection and authentication attempts to my server using syslog and saving those logs to my server. Right now I have KSystemLog reading this logfile with the kernel log, but it doesnt really apply here. IPTables would be a closer fit, but that option is not available either.

Just my two cents which, well, aren't worth that. :) - Sep 06 2006
