how to monitor Linux logs/events

Log files are a set of records that Linux maintains for the administrators to keep track of important events. Linux provides a centralized repository of log files that can be located under the  /var/log directory.

The log files generated in a Linux environment can typically be classified into four different categories:

  • Application Logs
  • Event Logs
  • Service Logs
  • System Logs

Our requirement to monitor those Linux logs either direct by machine/Server agent or Let me know if we have any Extension for same requirements.

 

Please suggest how to monitor Linux logs/events
