It’s a Friday evening, and you are yearning to finish your
work and go home to see the family, but you are stuck
with looking a bunch of logs from your system repository to
find out where the failure occurred, and why.

What a relief it would be!
There are a few tools to help us sort out the logs, and
focus on the topics that we are looking for, making our
lives a bit easier.
