Mark logs as read

Postby mmartinell » Fri Jan 27, 2023 10:02 am


We are extremely new to Nagios and are evaluating if this will work for us.

We are looking for a very basic syslog solution. I have set up both Nagios XL and Nagios Log Server.
It looks like the Log Server almost does what we want. The only thing I'm not seeing is an ability to mark that a syslog has been read and clear it from the screen. For example if some logs come in from a server and I take a look at them I would like to somehow mark that I have already looked at those logs. That way my coworkers don't have to also look at them. Don't need to put down a note or anything - just want to clear the logs or somehow indicate a log has been looked at.

I had reached out to sales initially, who suggested Nagios XL, but I'm not seeing the nice simple syslog solution in that product.

I don't know of a way to do this, maybe someone else does. NLS receives and displays a list of log messages.
I don't know what nagios XL is.
Think about searching the internet about your question. It will give you a million possibilities in the blink of an eye.
