I'm looking for a good graphical tool for view and analyze log files (local and remote) that works on Fedora 15.

Which log files? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jun 15 '12 at 16:55
Generated by Apache log4j. – Elias Jun 15 '12 at 17:57
Remotely viewing the log4j logs usually is done via SocketHubAppender and displayed by Chainsaw. It can also display XML log files. But at the time I used it, there was no proper analyzing. – manatwork Dec 28 '12 at 17:38

How about using something like Splunk?

It's possible to do something like a tail -f on a log4j xml file in a remote host? – Elias Jun 15 '12 at 19:36
@Elias sure you can tail -f anything, but in your question you're asking for a GUI tool... It's getting confusing what you're really looking for. – janos Jun 17 '12 at 8:19
