ttywatch was originally designed to log serial console output from lots of Linux machines on a single monitor machine. It:
- Handles log rotation correctly.
- Can be configured in both a configuration file and on the command line (mix-and-match command-line and config file). The config file language is the same as the command-line language; learn one and you know both. Any configuration that can be specified on the command line can be specified in exactly the same way in a configuration file, and vice versa.
- Supports arbitrary data logging methods via dynamically loaded modules.
- Can optionally connect any monitored port to a network socket, and it can support arbitrarily many telnet connections to each port. The connections work together in "whiteboard" fashion; all output is shown to every connection and input is accepted from all connections.
- Includes a fairly complete man page.
- Is packaged with all the pieces necessary for use, including config files, init script, and so forth, and can build RPM packages easily.
- Depends on popt and glib.
