SUMMARY: syslog monitoring script

From: Stuart Kendrick (

I want to monitor syslog and respond appropriately -- page, e-mail -- upon
certain events, and I had questions about how to accomplish a particular
detail in my code.

The uniform response was not to reinvent the wheel but to use swatch,
PERL-based code produced at Stanford.

I've implemented it, and in fact received a page late last night for a
particularly painful failure which it detected.
