Hi there. I have only poked at Grafana for a little bit and I have to admit that long and thorough reeding through the how-to’s issn’t my fortay, not by a long shot. I’m trying this software because I just love to read the logs from my computer. I don’t know why that is, but that’s how it is. I was googling around looking for better log collecting and surveying apps and stumbled on Grafana serveral times. I’m just a private person with a personal computer so there is no more logs than the error logs I my self are creating being a certified n00b trying out Kubuntu, or Linux at all for that matter.
I’m wondering two things.
Is the bridge connections docker0 and virbr0 generated from Grafana? I’m fairly sure I botched my Loki-install so I’m a bit confuzzled. I’m a little bit paranoid and I really dont like things like that just plopping up. But since I’m well aware that I rather test-click on every button I see than reading manuals I’m not calling foulplay without checking first.
Secondly, is this software something for me? It seems really cool but on the other hand it also seems to not be what I’m looking for.
I bet there’s a whole lot of people in here who loves logs as much as I do maybe I could get some tips if Grafana turns up not being my cup of jam.
I’m looking for a pretty simple logging program. A little bit like a mail program. It collects logs, sorts the data and stores it encrypted. It also a must to be able to watch in real time.
I have screwed up Ubuntu so many times I almost constantly have logs on one screen so I at least have a chans of stoping my chinanagans before Sir Kernel throws me out.
I would also like if you could customizse it so user choosen topics got sent to the desktop notifier.
And ofcourse been able to customize what’s displayed on the screen.
The program I like the most so far is Ksystemlog. But it’s not that customizable.
There, I’m done rambling.
