Log Watcher

Log

Monitors a given log file, reporting the rate of occurrences of a provided term.

Overview

Monitors a given log file, reporting the rate of occurrences of a provided term. It’s the perfect plugin for error tracking. Lets says you have a web application that occasionally generates an error and you log those errors to a file. Lets say you proceed the error info with [Error]. So, an error might look like this:

[Error] Bats in the belfry
