Simple log analyzer for pygopherd. Fun if you have a gopherhole and want
statistics. If you ever used [Logwatch] you'll feel at home.
[Github repository here] or just [the script here].
Consider sponsoring me on Github. It means the world to me if you show you
r appreciation and you'll help pay the server costs.
ou can also sponsor me by getting a Digital Ocean VPS. With this referral link you'll get $100 credit for 60 days.
* pygopherd (tested with 2.0.18)
* syslog of some kind
* bash 4+
* Clone the git repository or save the shell script somewhere
* Make the script executable (`chmod +x ./pygopherstats.sh`)
* Run it providing one or more logfiles to analyze:
./pygopherstats.sh /var/log/syslog /var/log/syslog.1 ./pygopherstats.sh
If you don't have a central syslog server, use poor man's ssh to get all the log
files from all the servers:
for host in $(dig +short a example.org); do
ssh -l root $host "zgrep pygopherd /var/log/syslog.*";
done 2>/dev/null > gopherlog
