    5. password: A password defined here will also apply to all hosts

    7. logs: An array of logs to monitor for all defined hosts
    8. hosts: The recommended method of including host definitions
    9. host: The name or IP of machine to apply log monitoring streams
    10. port: The SSH port for this particular host, uses global port option if omitted

    var options = {
      global: {
        port: 22,
        username: 'root',
        privateKey: './path/to/global/privatekey',
        logs: [
      hosts: [
          host: 'host-1.example',
          privateKey: './path/to/host-1.example/privatekey',
          logs: [
          host: 'host-2.example',
          port: 2222,
          username: 'iamroot',
          privateKey: './path/to/host-2.example/privatekey',
          host: 'host-3.example',
          password: 'secret-sauce',
          logs: [


    Once you have a good configuration with at least one defined host to monitor usage is easy.


    var cherubum = require('proginoskes');
    cherubum.proginoskes(options, function(err, data) {
      if (err) throw err;

    returned object

    The returned object(s) are simple, but makes it easy to determine source.

    Example javascript [ { server: 'server-1', log: '/var/log/ufw.log', data: 'Jan 9 07:24:12 node kernel: [UFW BLOCK] IN=eth0 OUT= MAC=52:54:00:12:34:56:52:55:0a:00:02:02:08:00 SRC= DST= LEN=44 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=64 ID=1593 PROTO=TCP SPT=60948 DPT=443 WINDOW=8760 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0' }, { server: 'server-2', log: 'access-logs/', data: ' - - [09/Jan/2015:08:23:13 -0600] "POST /wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron=1420813393.8197140693664550781250 HTTP/1.0" 200 - "-" "WordPress/4.0.1;"' } ]
