This is an official Gentoo hosted project initially developed for Gentoo
Wasabi is a log monitoring program, designed to watch one or more log files for
lines matching user defined regular expression and report on the matches. The regular
expressions are assigned to queues which have an alert interval and a list of
Queues can be set to send a notification as soon as there is a log line assigned
to it, or to send periodic reports.
Additionally, uninteresting fields in the log messages (such as PID numbers) can
be masked with the standard regular expressions grouping operators ( ). This
allows cleaner and more readable reports. All reports are separated by hostname
and all messages are condensed when possible.
The program reads a configuration file (wasabi.conf) and then forks a deamon for
monitoring the specified log files.
Please read the example wasabi.conf and wasabi.8 man page for usage
