A remote log watcher daemon that uses ssh, and multithreaded design.

Project Description



It was conceived with the idea on mind that not all IT infraestructures or applications have a well defined and centralized logging system. This cant be a reason to not “listen” a those remote logs on that servers. Log reviews can be very painfull if you dont have a tool like this on your toolbelt.

With this application we can ‘ssh in’ all our servers simultaneously , get each line of those logs of interest and write it on local files, show them on a html fashion through its integrated HTTP server or launch notification events when one log entry arrives from servers.


Broadly speaking we can think that this application have 2 layers. One of them is the main process omnilogd (daemon), that launches, controls and communicate the second layer, the app runnable sub components (threading involved).

The other components are wrappers around third party libraries .

Key features

See remote logs via SSH. Main SSH auth methods. Store logs in local folder for further analysis. Auto reload config when it changes.(No manual service restart needed) Built-in HTTP server for showing results.


If you have problems with dbus module, install it with: apt-get install python3-dbus

From pypi install as: pip3 install omnilog

You can create a skeleton , omnilog will write in your $HOME dir a example config, webpanel example and dir for received logs. Just write: skeleton

Use it config.json

Where config.json is the route to your configuration file. You can get an example of this in docs/config.dist.json.

For further and more detailed documentation visit the docs subfolder. If you simply “want to use it” this README shoul be sufficient.
