Logwatch is a Perl-based log management tool for analyzing, summarizing, and reporting on a server’s log files. It is most often used to send a short digest of server’s log activity to a system administrator.
What are log files? Logs are application-generated files useful for tracking down and understanding what has happened in the past.
