LOGman Details

I am considering your LOGman product and have a few questions:

  • Does LOGman log failed login attempts?
  • Does LOGman log the IP address a user is coming from in its entries?
  • Can LOGman periodically output logs to file?
  • Is there an API to add LOGman entries from a custom component (not using event driven plugins)?

Thanks.

Hello Donald,

  • Does LOGman log failed login attempts?: No. LOGman relies on events when integrating it with Joomla extensions. This means that activities get only created when the action is successful. If a component triggers an event when the action fails, then LOGman could log these failed actions through a custom LOGman plugin.

  • Does LOGman log the IP address a user is coming from in its entries?: Yes. These are available in a DB table column.

  • Can LOGman periodically output logs to file?: Not out of the box, but a very simple CLI application running as a cron job could easily take care of this.

  • Is there an API to add LOGman entries from a custom component (not using event driven plugins)?: Yes. You may use the LOGman activity controller to direclty add activities within other applications. You may check
    ComLogmanPluginAbstract::log to see how this is done from plugins.

For more information about the LOGman API, please refer to the developer guides. LOGman exposes a very powerful API for logging and exposing activities.
