Kerberos logs analysing and monitoring

Hello,

do you know any free OSS software for analysing the MIT Kerberos logs, mainly authentication - who has logged in and when, who has logged out and when. It would be good to have some statistical data about logins (average number of logins per day and similar).

Hello,
 Natively Linux has log files for the Kerberos, you could probably write a script to search the log files for a given text string (logons and such) and via a cron job use sendmail to email the results to you.

 Another alternative if you only wanted to do statistical analysis is to use something like Wireshark then perform a search on the output of that data. You also could integrate the MIT Kerberos with Active Directory then log it through Windows (I know who wants to do that!!! But it is an option)

 Last here are some sites that may be of assistance in general to you.

Or you could try Kerberos monitor from SolarWinds (Not cheap though)

^ Not exactly a complete and accurate answer that I was looking for, but anyway thank you. B.

I have found some nice tools for log analysis such as Splunk, but I will write my own solution at the end.
