Centralized application logging server, logFaces reached its version 2.5 release this month. With its own embedded database, logFaces creates a central point for the collection of log data from applications running on multiple machines.
This release brings with it notification triggers, an asynchronous appender with a failover mechanism, and user interface enhancements for filters, drills and queries. In addition, logFaces 2.5 provides an API for programming your own handlers.
The product supports a log4j.dtd compliant, format which can be used with log4j, logback, log4net, log4cpp, slf4j and any other framework using this format. The system is platform-independent, due to its Java foundation, and is currently distributed for Win32 and Linux gtk x86 platforms.
