Is there an easy way to do something like
tail -f mylogfile but to have the changes of more than one file displayed (maybe with the file name added as prefix to each line)? Or maybe a GUI tool? I am running Debian.
Have you tried
tail -f file1 file2? It appears to do exactly what you want, at least on my FreeBSD machine. Perhaps the
tail that comes with a Debian system can do it too?
For some reason, answers along the lines of
tail -f file1 file2 wasn't quite what I had in mind.
I want to know what happened in several logs sort of most recently 'locally', regardless of the global chronological order.
To do that, I used something more like
watch -n1 tail -n10 file1 file2
