Syslog-ng triggers in Security and Firewalls Posted February 8, 2008 · Report reply I don't know if syslog-ng can do that or not. What i would do is write something in perl to parse the log file every 5-10 minutes and look for that keyword. If it is there, send the lines which contain it to an email account. If you need it i can write something for you to do just that. A perl-script might do the trick, however instant action when a message arrives is what I'm working on.
