Scripts Related to - LogDog

Script Name

IP Accountant

IP Accountant allows you to keep an Rx/Tx byte count for each address aliased to a single interface. It features optional graphical output.

Perl Digger

Perl Digger is a freeware Perl script to dig for information about the server-side environment including a list of all installed Perl modules with a handy link to their documentation at CPAN. The server information includes detailed OS version, CPU + memoru + disk utilizations, etc.


ScanAlert was built to analyze iptables log entries in real time and report detected port scans to syslogd. From there you can use a log monitoring daemon (like logdog) to take action if desired, or you can manually review the logs later if you prefer. It does not need special permissions, it doesn't listen on any network ports - it receives iptables messages from syslogd via a FIFO. It runs as a daemon, and supports the HUP signal to reload, has multiple debug levels, and does not require any special perl modules. ScanAlert has a straight forward interface and configuration file making it easy to use and configure.


PEANUTS is a console-based Internet user management system, which is perfect for system administrators who normally do things like adding virtual hosts or new users by hand. It allows such tasks to be completely automated.

Directory Space Manager (dirspace)

This script will keep track of any directories under a main directory that you specify. The most obvious use for this is keeping track of users homedirectorys or webspace directorys on a webserver (isps, webspace providers, email systems, etc.) It will email you if a certain directory gets too big.

Advance Bandwidth

Script to monitor incoming and outgoing bandwidth in real time. Provides reports month, day and hour wise. Useful for load balancing and detecting misuse of server.


Can't get a shell account at your ISP Want to be able to use normal Unix commands to maintain or clean up your directories, create backups, install software and debug scripts Execute multiple commands at one time. Easy to install, set up and use. Multiple security features include password protection, valid referer URL list, hidden directories, configurable file names.


Syslog2 is a realtime parser and event handler for syslogd. An event is a message from some service. It uses a simple plugin system to add event handlers. Syslog2 is written in Perl. A plugin is simply a Perl script which invokes the "register_handler" or "unregister_handler" subroutines. By default, the package uses the included script "", which logs all messages from the syslog daemon in sorted order. More scripts are available from the homepage.


A simple Perl script which monitors system load and if the load is higher than a specified amount, it performs user-defined commands in an attempt to lower the load. Once the load has returned to a normal level (also user-defined), it will perform another set of specified commands to bring the server back to normal. This script also can connect to an Eggdrop bot to announce problems with the server load in real-time.

World Wide Backup

World Wide Backup is a free script that will allow you to backup your website and even gives you the option to FTP that backup to another server. Requires that your server has Tar (most UNIX/Linux based systems do). For the FTP option, you also will need the Net::FTP module installed on your server (again, most do). The script also can email you when the backup is finished (or if there was an error). Perfect for Cobalt servers.
