One way to monitor multiple logs simultaneous is to use tail. Although this works, and works well, if the logs are modified frequently, they seem to scroll endlessly and messily. What is meant by messily. As a log file is modified, it takes precedence over the previous log as it updates the terminal. One way around this is with multitail.
To install on CentOS 6.
yum install -y epel-release yum install -y multitail
To use it is just as easy as using tail.
Display 3 logfiles in 2 columns
multitail -s 2 /var/log/maillog /var/log/messages /var/log/httpd/access_log
Run a command and view the log file.
multitail /var/log/httpd/*_log -l "wget http://www.mywebsite.com"
To change from the default color scheme, create a config file. For example, call
multitail -cS test_log /path/to/log with the following
colorscheme:test_log cs_re:green:INFO cs_re:red:SEVERE
