Modern syslogd replacement with PCRE support
Metalog is a modern replacement for syslogd and klogd. The logged messages can be dispatched according to their facility, urgency, program name and/or Perl-compatible regular expressions.
Log files can be automatically rotated when they exceed a certain size or age. External shell scripts ex mail can be launched when specific patterns are found.
Metalog is easier to configure than syslogd and syslog-ng, accepts unlimited number of rules and has switchable memory bufferisation for maximal performance.
