I'm looking for large amounts of varied syslog data for testing a log analysis tool.


  • Logs from different Unices and Linux distributions
  • Logs from routers, switches, storage arrays, firewalls, IDS and appliances
  • Logs from different countries and industries
  • Logs spanning several years

Google searching has only given me small sets of fairly repetitive logs.


"Loghub maintains a collection of system logs, which are freely accessible for research purposes. Some of the logs are production data released from previous studies, some others are collected from real systems in our lab environment. Wherever possible, the logs are NOT sanitized, anonymized or modified in any way."
