PSOS management
ftptail (Egbert A. Friedrich)
  This perl script allows you to tail an FileMaker Server log over FTP. Just open the terminal and type: perl ftptail -s 5 -n 30 -f --password-file=pw.txt where the password is stored inside the pw.txt file, the file is tailed with a 5 second refresh and shows the last 30 lines. If you add " > access.log" you are piping the reult to a local log, effectively replicating the server log. Open this in a good text editor like BBEdit and you have a live updating and searchable log.
