Gamall has way too much free time. You know, Gamall, Relic Entertainment currently have quite a few vacancies for programmers, if you're interested in a coding career.
Oh, sorry, the file. Yeah. I'll get right on that.
It's hard to give a substantial review to what amounts to a search tool for server logs, because it's a straight forward file, designed to be used intuitively by the masses (presumably). However, searching through server logs can be a tedious task, which is why you need something to filter them, straightforward or not. And that's what you have here. The ability to filter through logs and only retain relevant information based on strings entered. I'm not sure how much more I can really say without going into techno-babble, and I very nearly got fired the last time I did that. Check the included docu.txt file for further details.
Just two slight niggles, really. First, it's command-line based, and not all of the server admins for JA - in fact, I'd be willing to bet hardly any of them - have experience with UNIX-based operating systems and CLIs. Hey, welcome to the age of graphical user interfaces, where people consider such things obsolete despite the fact command line tools are extremely valuable for a lot of things. :(
Second niggle, is the documentation. It assumes former knowledge, and in this case, for a tool useful to the masses at large, I'd have expected the app to be better documented for those not in-the-know. After all, no one will ever know if no one ever teaches.
Source code is included under the GNU General Public License, as always, but unless you're a programmer it won't help much. Nice to know the option is there, though.
Other than that, though, another good utility that's practical and useful for server admins. Emphasis on server, though, because this does require you to be running a dedicated server process with SSH access to the system, so "glorified LAN games" (home-hosted servers) are left in the dark, as they are for just about anything else server-based short of JA+; there's a reason many recommend against those, after all. But, that's enough soapboxing.
Another good service rendered to the server managers of the world, from Gamall's rather over-worked brain. I'd bet hosting companies themselves would find good uses for this, too.
***************************************************************** ** Logs Filter ** ***************************************************************** #-----------------------------------------------------------# # TITLE : Logs Filter # # TYPE : Server Utility # # VERSION : 0.1 # # AUTHOR : Gamall Wednesday Ida # # E-MAIL : email@example.com # # WEBSITE : http://gamall-ida.com # # # # FILESIZE : ~700 Ko # # OS : Linux, Mac, Windows # # RELEASE DATE : March 2008 # #-----------------------------------------------------------# + DESCRIPTION +=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-o + This is a filter, in the Unix meaning of the word. Or rather, a collection of filters, which can easily be expanded. To that purpose, the Source Code is shipped, under the GNU GPL. It is fully documented; see index.html in the ./doc folder. Filters operate here on a line-by-line basis, and are seen as the combination of a predicate (string -> bool) and a transformation (string -> string), the first determining which lines to keep and the second altering those lines. A criterion called 'opacity' has been added which determines whether rejected lines, all lines or none are sent to STDERR, the idea being to chain an indefinite number of such filters without losing the original data, by recapturing STDERR. Possible uses include offering different views of a JK2 or JK3 gameserver in real time through a Standard Input Server (see documentation of SIS) or breaking down existing log files. Some predicates and transforms geared towards JK gameservers have been implanted. See docu.txt, or use the --help and --docu command-line options. + THE PACKAGE +=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-o + - The Source Code -~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o - The source code for Logs Filter is released under the GNU General Public License. This program is written in Objective Caml. - The Binaries -~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o - Logs filter is shipped with statically compiled binaries for GNU/Linux, which may or may not work on your own system. If they don't you will just have to compile it from source. You will need an OCaml compiler. In most cases, you will just need to run the build script in the /src directory. The Windows binaries should work on any Windows system from 95 on. + CONTACT +=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-o + If you need help, or have suggestions, comments, insults, praise or in general, anything to say about this program you expect me to read and answer to, please post on the program's topic on my website: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ http://gamall-ida.com/f/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=391 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + END OF FILE +=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-o +
