Unix has got text log files.
Use ssh/putty to login. In the login shell you can use grep command to filter certain information.
Different Unix have different log files.
Most Linux versions have got /var/log/messages.
Solaris has got /var/adm/messages.
HP-UX has got /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log.
Also the log levels are slightly different.
Unix and most Linux have got syslogd service, and log details are configured in the text file /etc/syslog.conf.
