login / su to root then type:-

ln -s /spider/perl/*dbg /usr/bin
ln -s /spider/perl/console.pl /usr/bin/dx

Then, whenever you login in, just type: watchdbg

and you will get the same stuff with some intelligible times and the 
ability to filter on regexes etc. All in real time.

Also you can use 'grepdbg' to search through the debug info for 
particular things.
