This appears to resemble something of interest:
freebeast(6.3-S) cat /usr/ports/security//swatch/pkg-descr
SWATCH - The Simple WATCHer and filter
Swatch is designed to monitor system activity. Swatch
requires a configuration file which contains pattern(s) to
look for and action(s) to do when each pattern is found.
Caveat: I've not used it, though I've seen references to it.
