From system log to alert sounds

From system log to alert sounds

Post by Mario Giammarc » Sat, 12 Apr 2003 22:48:02

I am searching a software that scans various logs and when notice
something interesting (eg: hacker intrusion, smart hard disk near fault,
temperature too high) warns me with a sound or a popup in gnome panel etc.

I know that exists nagios et similar but they are to difficult to
configure and overkill for a single computer

Any ideas? thanks in advance!

Hi All:
How would one test for an occurence of a given string within a field?

I use a script to notify network administrators if a print server in their bailiwick is down. If I don'r know the users name, I insert xxxx in a field.

# get the network administrator
    cut -d' ' -f3 /home/smartin/device > address.$i

what I want to do is if f3 contains xxxx, then don't stuff the name into address.
TIA any and all comments, suggestions, whatevers.
