 Tool of the Month: FreeBSD tools

"It's not at all uncommon for a sys admin to need to monitor multiple logfiles simultaneously. When you're troubleshooting an application like Apache or Exim, you might want to watch two or three logfiles while running tests. The "old and busted" way is to open up multiple xterms to tail -f each log separately. The "new hotness" is to just use a simple tool that makes it easy for you: Logmon. This effective little tool allows you to watch several logfiles at the same time in one window."
