    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a server application to receive Log4j messages that is
    not a pain to set up. I've looked at Chainsaw and it looks pretty
    heavy. The other one's I've seen are Logfeeder and Log4Web which look
    too simplistic. Can anyone recommend anything else or offer their
    opinions of the above?

    Thanks in advance,
    LDF

    Actually Chainsaw is pretty lightweight compared to everything else :)

    You didn't say what exactly are you trying to achieve, so I would assume
    that you want to monitor your logs from remote control point. If what
    you need is to log messages on remote server - just use the
    SimpleSocketServer from log4j.

    A very good log management tool is XpoLog (xplg.com) Recently I've been
    seeing all these ads for Splunk, so you might want to check it as well.

    If what you need is monitoring and management, Tibco Hawk is a good one
    and not as expensive as most of the others NMS-es. Even cheaper
    (actually free ;-) is OpenNMS.

    Thanks dimitar, I looked into XpoLog, Splunk, Tibco Hawk and OpenNMS.
    Definitely SimpleSocketServer is closer to what I was thinking of :)

    Cheers
