NAME

XAS::Logmon - A set of procedures and modules to monitor files

DESCRIPTION

Monitoring and extracting information from log files is an important task. There is important operational data stored in those files. They detail the state of your operations. These modules would compliment a centralized syslog gathering operationation. Even thou XAS can write to syslog or create JSON formatted log messages and spool them directly, these modules provide a framework that can be expanded to include other types of files.

The design of this system is a monitoring process that spawns background jobs that do the actual work. Those background jobs are kept alive when file states change, such as file rotation or new file creation.

A multi-process system is simpler to design and keep alive. It follows the XAS philosophy of small, simple components, that do one thing well.

UTILITIES

This module provides the following utilities.

xas-logmon

This is procedure is used to spawn and monitor file monitoring processes. It reads a configuration file to determine which files to monitor.
