       gnome-system-log - the GNOME System Log Viewer


       or select System Log from the System Tools submenu of the Applications menu.

       GNOME System Log Viewer is a simple utility to display system log files.

       The GNOME System Log Viewer was written by Cesar Miquel <miquel@df.uba.ar>.

       GNOME System Log Viewer Plugin Interface was written by Lin Ma <lin.ma@sun.com>.

       This manual page was written by Jochen Voss <voss@mathematik.uni-kl.de>.

       Plugin Service Provider Interface (SPI)
	      We  have	provided  an SPI for adding plugins into Gnome Log Viewer. The SPI mainly
	      includes three parts:

	      I/O (LogviewIFaceIO)
		     This defines the main input interface. This is used by Log Viewer to read	a
		     logs  content  into  memory,  whether the logs source is text or binary, the
		     data returned here should be text - most likely in the  current  locale.  It
		     also provides methods to allow the main application to get other information
		     about the log such as whether the log has changed.

		     It's the reposibility of the plugin to maintain information  about  the  log
		     file(s) such as the current location in the file, the size of the file, etc.

	      Views (LogviewIFaceView)
		     This  interface  defines  a  mechanism to enable the formatting of log data,
		     dividing it into lines. The current  implementation  defines  how	to  group
		     lines  by	date  and  the	conversion  of the log from the current locale to

	      Collectors (LogviewIFaceCollector)
		     This interface is used to gather the list of logs. New types of logs may  be
		     added using this interface.

       For the detail information, please see /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/logview/index.html.

       Plugin Priority
	      A  priority list is maintained for each category of plugin - this defines the order
	      in which plugins will be used - higher priority  plugins	override  lower  priority
	      plugins. Priorities are categorised as:

	      Priority 0-9: Used by the delivered default plugins
	      Priority 10+: End Users plugins.

       Plugin Search Path
	      Log Viewer will search in the following directories for plugins:

	      $HOME/.gnome2/gnome-system-log/plugins/`uname -p`

       Plugin Security
	      Both  libgrablogs  and  libpipelog  only recognize the configure file which has the
	      same owner ship to the user, otherwise they will back to the system  default  ones.
	      In Solaris, they will use a fork/exec/pfsh to run the commands within the configure
	      files; in Linux, they will use popen(3).

       Default Plugins
	      Three plugins are available for the end-users. They are  libgrablogs.so,	libplain-
	      log.so and libpipelog.so.

	      A default plugin - collecting some log files from system. See grablogs.conf (4).

	      A default plugin - view ASCII log files.

	      A  default plugin - has a higher priority than libplainlog.so, view the output of a
	      command. See pipelog.conf (4).

	      The system's main logfile.

	      Configuration file for syslogd.  See syslog.conf(5) for exact information.
