Logfiles search

Does any one know of a way to search all log files at once for say a time period Eg 23:35:27 to 23:55:27 or for an IP address and display the result.

I don’t believe there’s a way to do exactly that in Webmin/Virtualmin… the closest thing would be Webmin -> System -> System Logs, click one of the logfiles, then choose “View Log”.

At the bottom, you can search for text – so you could enter your IP address there and use that to search the log.


Hi Eric
Thanks for the reply. That is what I thought.

What I am really want to do is compare log entries across multiple logs at the same time, making it easer to track patterns of hack attempts.

Anyway thanks
