Installing Syslog tools (MIR)

Out of connectathon periods, we use the SyslogBrowser available on WUSTL server at We need this tool to be locally installed in the connectathon floor in order to use it from there.

Here are the steps to install and configure the tools.

First, you need to ask Ralph for the latest versions of the tools (SyslogCollector and SyslogBrowser). It will come in one ZIP file enclosing the syslog collector and a WAR to be installed in Tomcat for the Syslog Browser part.


Unzip the archive in your /opt directory.


The Syslog Browser run under tomcat7.
