tenshi 0.3.1 has been released

Tenshi was formerly known as wasabi. The name was changed to tenshi after we were informed that wasabi is a registered trademark relating to another piece of software.

The updated ebuild is available in portage at app-admin/tenshi.

Here's the Changelog:

- added 'set tailargs' option
- fixed buggy logprefix implementation
- fixed buggy cron */skip implementation
- fixed broken cron specs examples

- What's tenshi?

This is a Gentoo hosted project initially developed for Gentoo infrastructure servers.

Tenshi is a log monitoring program, designed to watch one or more log files for lines matching user defined regular expressions and report on the matches. The regular expressions are assigned to queues which have an alert interval and a list of mail recipients.

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 host
name and all messages are condensed when possible.

The program reads a configuration file (tenshi.conf) and then forks a deamon for monitoring the specified log files.

Please read the example tenshi.conf and tenshi.8 man page for usage instructions.
