LogTail is an OS X app to view and monitor local and remote log files on linux servers (using SSH) or any plain text file in a simple, clean and unified interface!

It reads log files and outputs their contents as they change, and can follow or "tail" the file in a way similar to the Unix 'tail' utility (tail -f)

LogTail is helpful in monitoring application and system log files which are updated constantly at runtime.

It allows you to set up filter and highlight rules that can be used to hide or colorize lines with matching search terms. This allows you to focus on the important data in your log files! You can also enable notifications to be alerted when matching text is found in the log file.

In addition you can:
Manage and browse remote SSH server hosts
Bookmark and Search remote log files
Share local log files as Mail message attachment or Messages instant message (or via AirDrop or add to Notes (Sharing toolbar item))

Version 2.7
Review by Jemodo

Very slick! - I started using this application about a week ago, based on a recommendation from a colleague. It is terrific and customizable. I am a professional engineer and need to look at log files on a regular basis in order to troubleshoot issues. The tailing feature is of course terrific, but I really love the ability to create custom filters so that I can highlight particular lines for ease of finding particular types of events. I had a few feature requests, which I e-mailed to the developers. They were very quick to respond and seemed receptive to the feedback.

Version 2.0
Review by Sybaritic Cyborg

disappointing - App looked nice, had great potential, but is a real bear with any log longer than a few MB. I have a 1.5 GB log on my local machine which takes minutes to load, and since it seems the buffer in the display lazy loads only part of log at a time (why the long time to open it then if this is so?) the app’s performance is virtually unusable.
