Description:

KLogWatch sits in the system tray and monitors a kernel log file for Netfilter (ie. iptables) log lines. Clicking on the System Tray icon opens up a window with a history of all the logged packets. Users can then perform basic operations on the packet information (whois, traceroute, host, etc.).




Changelog:

Version 2.0.3:
Do proper column sorting on addresses and ports.

Version 2.0.2:
Be sure to save config when a session closes
Add ping command
Actually use dest IP address when doing traceroute on dest IP
Allow use of $(DESTDIR) during installation. Thanks to Tiziano Mueller for the initial patch.

Version 2.0.1:
Fixed error message reporting of an invalid logfile

Version 2.0:
New features:
* New columns to account for all netfilter log info
* Select which columns to see
* Column size and order saved
* Window size and position saved
* Right mouse button actions
* Adjustable print font
* Can now print/save window contents or raw log messages

Changes:
* Some code cleanups; more on the way
* Changing configuration does not require restart
* Desktop file installed automatically
* Removed popup on alert action; all alerts appear in the tray
* Debian package files and RPM spec file included

Version 1.8.4:

Fixed bug in Save As option
New cleaner icons
Added uninstall make target

Version 1.8.3:

Corrected to work properly when log-rotation occurs
Use proper KDE config file location
(Copy your ~/.klogwatch to ~/.kde/share/config/klogwatchrc).
Don't scroll down to new packets if window already visible

Version 1.8.2:

Corrected "parsed == false" assertion failure on startup under latest KDE versions.

Version 1.8.1:

Fixed SIGABRT Mandrake problem where /var/log/kernel is a directory

Version 1.8:

Fixed the autoconf system for Fedora/Mandrake/Debian
Added sort by destination port
Lookup protocol numbers in /etc/protocols to give names

 Fedora build?

 
 by nickbattle on: Mar 15 2004
 
Score 50%

Has anyone managed to build KLogWatch on Fedora? Apparently it doesn't install the KDE devel packages in places that the configure script looks for by default. If someone could supply a ./configure line that does the trick I'd be grateful.

It appears the KLogWatch autoconf system isn't smart enough to figure out the KDE/Qt lib and include directories on some distributions - particularly Fedora, Debian and Mandrake.

These will be fixed in release 1.8, due out shortly.

OK, all fixed now. Should compile on all distros (that I know of!) and the nasty SIGABRT problem on Mandrake is fixed too - it was because on Mandrake 10, the default /var/log/kernel location is a directory when the program was expecting it to be a regular file.

 run error

When I run klogwatch, the following message appears:

[rob@luctor ~]$ klogwatch
klogwatch: kcmdlineargs.cpp:227: static void KCmdLineArgs::addCmdLineOptions(const KCmdLineOptions*, const char*, const char*, const char*):Assertion `parsed == false' failed.
Aborted

But when I run it with de -d option, it runs fine.

It looks like you've spotted a problem with the way newer versions of KDE parse their command line arguments. I've sent you a suggested patch by email. If that works, let me know and I'll issue 1.8.2.

Thanks for telling me about this.

 remote connection

Hi. good work!
just a question (i don't know if is a stupid one), I use Linux SmoothWall in my gateway (in a i386 oldi) and I really need to monitor the logs of iptables, but this box don't have any graphics lib. or something like.
What can I do to compile this program for this kind of distribution and run it in my X11 linux desktop via ssh???

thankyou.

Hi Xavier,

KLogWatch just tails a file, so if you can dynamically pull your Netfilter log files back to the graphical machine, KLogWatch will "watch" them for you. I don't know much about ssh and whether it's possible to spool a file continuously between machines like this. Obviously something like an NFS mount should work.

Once you've got the file "coming over", you point KLogWatch at it with the -f option (or use the setup menu to change the monitored file).

You may really want to find a static log analyiser - ie. one which looks at the logs on a regular basis (say every day) rather than dynamically watching the log file? There are other log tools which do this.

HTH,


Cheers,
-nick

 Possible bug

 
 by huru on: Nov 13 2004
 
Score 50%

Hi, I just installed KlogWatch on my Gentoo today. Compile & Install went fine and program works ok when I start it, however, after a while (can't tell exactly how long) it seems to stop monitoring. When first started, rejected packets get shown correctly, but then suddenly there's nothing. After restart events get detected properly again. Any ideas what might cause that?

And one suggestion: How about adding possibility to configure which events should trigger popup (or system tray) alarm? I don't really care about those gazillions of windows network messages that tend to be blocked :) Then again I guess I could just not log them but would be a nice addition anyway. Thanks for nice piece of software!

Hi,

It shouldn't stop monitoring (of course!). How do you know that it's not monitoring the file - new events not registering? If you run KLogWatch from the command line, and use -d (debug), is there any extra information? You should see a "." printed every time it checks the logfile for new content (the Poll interval).

I like the other idea. How to specify what you do/don't want to see though. Just by port/protocol?


Cheers,
-nick

I tried running from command line with -d option as you suggested, looks like program is still running and sort of monitoring the logfile, ie. "." gets printed to stdout every second (poll interval set to one second). However, events do not get shown after a certain period. There's no errors or anything printed. Ie. I can ping the host and ping events do get logged in logfile, but there's no feedback of any kind in klogwatch, seems it simply won't recognise the event.

OK, I'll try to reproduce it here. To be honest, I might not notice if it stopped monitoring events - these days, you get so many events blocked that I tend to just ignore them all (turn it off, or pause it for 20 minutes).

If it's possible, can you give me a logfile that spans the period when it was working, and includes some packets at the end that are not recognised? If you just tell me the last packet from the log that was found, I can see if there's anything after that (perhaps from another source) that might throw it.

Can you mail it to me home address (the freeuk.com address on my profile here, or in the Help panel of the program). Gzipped would help - modem I'm afraid :-)

I don't suppose you have log-rotation configured? Some systems have cron jobs that archive old logs, delete very old logs, and start fresh ones every so often.

I'd not thought about this before, but if that happens - so a particular logfile (inode) is no longer being written to - then of course the program wouldn't notice (and I should try to do something about it, like close and re-open the file by name every so often!)

OK, should all be fixed in 1.8.3. The code didn't take account of log-rotation.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
