I'm constantly tailing log files. At any given time I've got half a dozen terminal windows open that are simply running tail -f .
In OS X, the Console app is brilliant. All the usual log files are there (system, mail, apache, etc) and you can add in your own custom logs. Everything in one place, in a searchable interface. If you reboot, just fire up Console and you are right where you left off.
Is there anything similar to Console for Linux?
