Don't worry about beagleindex.
Think of it as like updatedb. I've read some sites where said that it
"ransacks personal data" which frankly kind of creeped me out.
I really don't know.

I decided to delete its account on my system ;-)

By default, system log is /var/log/messages
You should use /var/log/secure to find out which connections have been made to 
your system.
Every service, like Apache, proftpd...have their own logs.
Furthermore, if you have configured iptables to log some connections, look at 
it too.

Hope that helps.
