Thread: Tail GUI Application

  1. #1

    Default Tail GUI Application

    Hi everybody,

    I'm looking for a graphical application that lets me "tail -f" a file on a remote host. Just to avoid logging via SSH to the remote host, and tailing always the same paths.
    Does anyone know if there's something for my purpose?
    I've searched a lot but found nothing appropriate...

    Thanks in advance.

    Luca

    Just make your own:

    xterm -e tail -f somefile

    You can also use konsole in place of xterm

    thanks ken_yap,

    I've already tried with:

    xterm -e slogin user@host 'tail -f /path/to/log/'

    and it works fine,

    but I was looking for something that could maybe store passwords or get a list of the more recents logs viewed...
