For a long time that I’v wanted to install logstalgia….
Todays is the day!

So, we need to download Xcode 5.1.1 (Mountain Lion) from https://developer.apple.com/downloads/.

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
brew install wget
wget https://github.com/acaudwell/Logstalgia/releases/download/logstalgia-1.0.6/logstalgia-1.0.6.tar.gz
tar -zxvf logstalgia*.gz
cd logstalgia*

brew install pkg-config glew sdl2 SDL2_image sdl SDL_image boost GLM freetype pcre
make install

This should do the work.


Other way to install is using MacPorts – logstalgia @ macports -.

Via terminal

sudo port -p -u install "nolstalgia"

Using GUI?
You can try jportsui Java based, graphical user interface to MacPorts 2.0+.


If you have an old GCC verion (prior to 4.6) you might get the following errors…

Unfortunately while making “make” I had an error f*ck!

cc1plus: error: unrecognized command line option "-Wno-unused-but-set-variable"
cc1plus: error: unrecognized command line option "-std=gnu++0x"
make: *** [src/logstalgia-ncsa.o] Error 1

According to some pages GCC is to old. We need GCC 4.6, mine is 4.2.1.

gcc version 4.2.1 (Based on Apple Inc. build 5658) (LLVM build 2336.11.00)

Some references for Logstash+ElasticSearch+Kibana

These log files are still hard to use on their own. They are made by a computer for a computer and I am human trying to understand other humans. Logstash, ElasticSearch and Kibana to the rescue! Logstash is a tool for managing events and logs. You can use it to collect logs, parse them, and store them for later use (statement humbly borrowed fromhttp://logstash.net). ElasticSearch is a distributed restful search and analytics engine (yet again borrowed, but fromhttp://www.elasticsearch.org/overview/). Kibana is a GUI tool to visualize logs and time-stamped data in realtime (yet again borrowed, but from http://www.elasticsearch.org/overview/kibana/). These three tools make up a pretty good toolkit for creating some graphs and dashboards.
