Tipimaid is a collection of tools to ease the handling of Apache logs. It can be used as a piped logger for Apache and allows you to distribute log entries to different logfiles according to their virtual host information and the date and time of the request. Logging can be done either locally or over the network so that you can concentrate logs of a server farm on one logging computer.
The Tipimaid collection comprises four scripts which are:
tipimaid.py Used either as a piped logging tool or receives its loglines from tipimaid_server.py. It rotates logfiles and distributes loglines to different logfiles and is able to execute stuff when a file is rotated.
tipimaid_sender.py Used as a piped logging tool to send loglines across the network to tipimaid_server.py
tipimaid_server.py receives loglines sent by tipimaid_sender.py or netcat and outputs them to stdout where they are usually piped to tipimaid.py
tipimaid_mergelogs.py The disaster recovery tool if something went terribly wrong during logging over the network. It does a mergesort of several logfiles and outputs chronologically sorted loglines to stdout.
