Wasabi 0.1 has been released

I'm pleased to announce the first public release of Wasabi, a custom log monitoring tool.

This is an official Gentoo hosted project initially developed for Gentoo infrastructure servers.

Here's an extract from the README:

- What's wasabi?

Wasabi is a log monitoring program, designed to watch a log file 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 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 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 file.

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