Personally, I use notifier in the crontab -- running it out of snipslogd it will take input from stdin for the event in-question (so you only get alerted when something goes up/down). You might try tweaking the entry in snipslogd to cat the event log through notifier or to just redirect stdin to /dev/null and then reinvoke the notifier script on its own (ie. no stdin) -- HOWEVER, I do not know if this works or is "supported," persay (ie. YMMV). There may be further tips in the top of the script (notifier.pl) that may be of use to you: -- begin # [...] # Run this script every 5-10 minutes from crontab. Adjust $crontime # accordingly. # You can also run this script from snipslogd, so that you get notified as # soon as a device comes up or goes down. In this mode, it reads stdin for # eventlog format data, and the time of the event is set to -1 sec. In # this mode, it notifies for all the events read from stdin (i.e. all # severities). e.g. # [...] -- end Hope this somehow helps... Russell -- Russell M.
