Before I try to reinvent the wheel, I'd like to hear are there commonly
used utilities that process syslog logs (e.g. /var/log/messages), grep
them for some regex and notify configured e-mail addresses, in real time
(as messages arrive)? I imagine something like that would either do a
"tail -f" on log files or listen as a syslog filter.
