PyOhio 2010: Log Analysis with Python
Log Analysis with Python
Presented by Scott McCarty
Log analysis is something that every programmer and systems adminstrator must do sometimes. This talk will be an introduction to the concepts of pattern recognition, artificial ignorance, word counting, stopword lists, and command line graphing. It is based on a pythonic implementation of these techniques called petit and will delve into several use cases and show how using these techniques can help you save time when analyzing logs with python.
