syslog-ng© is the world's most flexible and scalable audit trail processing tool for organizations of any size. It provides a centralised, securely stored log of all devices on your network, whatever platform they run on. And syslog-ng also incorporates a host of powerful features, including filtering based on message content, as well as customisable data mining and analysis capabilities.

By default, syslog-ng stores its message in a plain text file under /var/log. Although text file allows easy and quick viewing, a sql database allows more flexibility. Thus, we will integrate syslog-ng with MySQL while retaining the text file for quick diagnosis when we log into the console.Here are the web interface tools which does exactly this
