  • fluent-bit

    Fast and Lightweight Logs and Metrics processor for Linux, BSD, OSX and Windows

    Project mention: Vector: a Rust-based lightweight alternative to Fluentd/Logstash | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-09-26

    Fluentbit is Fluentd's lightweight alternative to itself.


  • syslog-ng

    syslog-ng is an enhanced log daemon, supporting a wide range of input and output methods: syslog, unstructured text, queueing, SQL & NoSQL.

    Project mention: Fluent-Bit for Splunk | /r/Splunk | 2023-05-13

    Syslog-ng can feed splunk directly via HEC without having to use heavy forwarders. Earlier you had to hand configure it via the http () destination, v4.2 added this via a separate destination driver. https://github.com/syslog-ng/syslog-ng/releases/tag/syslog-ng-4.2.0

  • Mergify

    Updating dependencies is time-consuming.. Solutions like Dependabot or Renovate update but don't merge dependencies. You need to do it manually while it could be fully automated! Add a Merge Queue to your workflow and stop caring about PR management & merging. Try Mergify for free.

  • rsyslog

    a Rocket-fast SYStem for LOG processing

    Project mention: My collection of Ansible roles for self-hosting everything with Rocky Linux and FreeIPA | /r/selfhosted | 2023-06-02
  • snoopy

    Snoopy Command Logger is a small library that logs all program executions on your Linux/BSD system.

    Project mention: How to Capture Bash History? | /r/sysadmin | 2023-01-03

    If you're looking for a command auditing solution, it looks like some people have rigged up /etc/profile to send every command to syslog directly, some people use software like snoopy, etc. - those are all bypassable by a user, though. Using the kernel's audit functionality to snoop execve (setup auditd, set up rules like "auditctl -a exit,always -S execve") has plenty of downsides, but would be a real auditing solution.

  • audit-userspace

    Linux audit userspace repository

    Project mention: Where can I find a list of failed login attempts on Systemd Arch Linux? | /r/archlinux | 2022-10-03

    The closest I've got is this giant list of various searchable "Audit Codes" for journalctl logs: https://github.com/linux-audit/audit-userspace/blob/master/lib/libaudit.h

  • buck50

    STM32F103 logic analyzer and more

    Project mention: STM32F103C8T6 USART. HELP PLEASE IDK WHATS GOING ON | /r/embedded | 2023-07-11

    From my experience, always check the hardware first. Are you wiring correctly, maybe your wire is too long. You should have a logic analyzer to debug these protocols. You can use another stm32 board as logic analyzer https://github.com/thanks4opensource/buck50 (there are lots of open source logic analyzers out there). If it shows dots, I guess your uart config is correct. Maybe your clock is wrong. Making a logic analyzer and watching the pulse will make it easier to debug further.

  • stumpless

    a C logging library built for high performance and a rich feature set

  • Regshot-Advanced

    This is a fork of Regshot (original found at https://sourceforge.net/projects/regshot/) with very enhanced functionality.

  • DuckCpp

    Multifunctional keylogger using WinAPI and libcurl

  • liblogax

    Blazing fast, simple and modular header-only logging library with zero allocation for C and C++, implemented in C90. Allow logging into various output formats such as Key-Value and JSON.

    Project mention: Logging in your API | dev.to | 2023-02-22
