apt install logtop
xbps-install -S logtop
So on a Debian:
$ sudo apt install libncursesw5-dev uthash-dev Reading package lists... Done [...skipped for readability...] Processing triggers for man-db (2.8.2-1) ... $ make gcc -c -O3 -DVERSION=0.7.0 -Wall -fPIC -Wextra -ansi -pedantic -Wstrict-prototypes -I. src/avl.c -o src/avl.o [...skipped for readability...] $ make install
logtop displays a real-time count of strings received from stdin.
It can be useful in some cases, like getting the IP flooding your server:
$ tail -f /var/log/apache2/access.log | cut -d' ' -f1 | logtop
Or the top buzzing article of your blog:
$ tail -f /var/log/apache2/access.log | cut -d' ' -f7 | grep article | logtop
$ sudo apt install python-dev swig Reading package lists... Done [...] $ make python-module [...] $ python setup.py install
I use a hashtable to store strings and an AVL tree to store frequencies, so I can fetch by string or fetch ordered by frequency to display the top-strings.
Logtop can be used by your C programs, you may to compile against
logtop's sources (
liblogtop, obtained using
C API is described in
logtop.h, you need:
struct logtop *new_logtop(size_t history_size); void delete_logtop(struct logtop *this); void logtop_feed(struct logtop *this, char *line); struct logtop_state *logtop_get(struct logtop *this, size_t qte); double logtop_timespan(struct logtop *this); unsigned int logtop_qte_of_elements(struct logtop *this);
You can find an example of using the C API in
logtop module exposes a logtop class containing:
logtop.__init__(history_size) # to build a new logtop keeping # at most history_size lines. logtop.feed(line) # to feed a new line in logtop. logtop.get(qte_of_elements) # to get the top qte_of_elements lines. logtop.qte_of_elements() # to get the current total number of lines. logtop.timespan() # to get the duration from the oldest line to now.
timespan may be less than the runtime, as logtop drop old lines,
to keep, at most,
history_size lines, given in the constructor of
the logtop class.
The libavl used here is the Ben Pfaff's one, statically build with logtop, as Ben want it to be (see INSTALL file and here: http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2001/07/msg01303.html) So this libavl is NOT packaged as a library for Debian, the libavl you'll found in Debian repositories is the Wessel Dankers's one.
