Snoopy : Get, Set and log
This tool was "Snoopy". This is a open source project whose microscopic documentation is available at their github page:
You can find all installation and configuration doc at their github README.
We choose snoopy because it is a very lightweight tool that is just built with the intention of logging each and every command executed by user. It consists of only a tiny library which does all the logging.
1). Log each executed command by any user with its arguments
2). Configure the pattern of logs according to requirement using a simple configuration file
3). The logs generated by snoopy can be sent to a central logging server and then can be parsed to get useful information. For example: To get all sudo commands executed by a user.
Snoopy logger is a majestic utility which makes the admin work more effortless by providing a log of commands with its arguments executed via shell by any user. It comes with a configuration file "/etc/snoopy.ini" where you can configure how the logs are generated and the information in the logs you want to have.
We will make the procedure easy for installation and configuration of snoopy by creating puppet module and ansible role. We'll soon be launching a puppet module and an ansible role for it.
Also we'll showcase a useful example of snoopy logger with centralized logging using ELK.
