This project involved collection of logs from the various servers to a central logging server and creating a log ananlysis. The logs so analysed are graphed using open source tools and are available at the monitoring station for the duty officer to monitor at any instant and analyse to see if all the services are actively monitored for any abnormality. This system is a facilitator for the CC engineers to active service monitoring. The outcome of the project was a visual dashboard of the overall health and status of the various services offered by CC like web, FTP, mailservice.
The main skill set required for this project include Linux shell scripting, CSS, browser details, PHP scripting and knowledge of Linux system functioning. Installation and configuration of open source log analysis tools like awstats, rsyslog etc was also required to implement the service monitoring system. Later on the project was extended to license service monitoring with study and analysis of logs generated by the software licenses' manager lmgrd.
