LogReport and Lire Documentation

Lire Users Documentation

If you need more information on Lire, look in the documentation which comes with the software. You can also view it online, using the stable unpacked tarball. Start by reading the README file. The Lire User's Manual is available online.

There are Lire manpages shipped with the software. You can also view them online, using the Ubuntu Manpage Repository. Some nice introductory manpages are lire(7) and lr_log2report(1). Another online manpage repository is at olympus.het.brown.edu/dwww, it has its own lire(7) copy.

There are Lire mailing list archives. And of course, for questions on Lire, don't forget to use your favourite web search engine.

Lire Presentations

We've made many presentations (lots of slides!) about Lire and how/why logging works.

Please choose one of the following slide-shows:

There's also a generic presentation, prepared october 2002

Lire Developers Documentation, version control access

If you plan to hack on the Lire code, be sure to read the Lire Developer's Manual. Also, read the various developers manpages shipped with the software. You can view them online: Lire::DlfAnalyser(3pm), Lire::Config(3pm), Lire::OutputFormat(3pm), Lire::Report(3pm) are nice starting points.

You can get the very latest Lire sources via CVS through anonymous CVS access at SourceForge (use module 'service').

You can get the main branch by doing:

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous(a)logreport.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/logreport login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous(a)logreport.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/logreport \
  co -P service

Additionally, you can browse the CVS tree at the SourceForge website if you just want to have a look at the code.

For information on Lire and software licensing, refer to the Lire Licensing FAQ.

Other resources

Lots of information on general logging issues is available. The excellent LogAnalysis.org website on log analysis for computer security by Tina Bird and Marcus Ranum is a good starting point.
