MkConsole is a little application that displays log files on your desktop. It's useful if you have to monitor servers or you just want to keep an eye on what's going on on your machine. In its standard configuration it displays entries from any number of logfiles interleaved in a single window. MkConsole is smart enough to close and reopen files every now and then to deal with rotating files and it transparently works around stale NFS handles which often exist after your Mac wakes up from sleep and tries to read from a logfile mounted via NFS.

What's New

Version 1.11:
  • No functional changes but MkConsoleElement now displays an entry in the status area of the menu bar, which gives access to the preferences and allows to quit the element; no more AppleScripts for that. The source code, including all historical versions, is now in a new SVN repository.


Mac OS X 10.5 or later
