Re: MSGPATH x syslog

Posted By: Fernando Nunes

I have more or less what you want...
My "relatively complex script" can be setup for what you want. The
configuration file must be setup with a pattern that matches every thing,
and you can configure it to call a function that calls the logger.

The main script already accepts arguments that allows it torun as a Daemon
or as a "worker".
The deamon checks all instances in the machine and launches a worker for all
of them. The "workers" keep a tail -f on the file.

There is one problem though... This script is written to use another one
that I use to setup the environment. This script has some utility functions
that can generate a list (numbers) of environments... And the workers are
launched with a specific environment number. This part of the script would
have to be chenged/tailored to your needs, but it should be trivial...
If you want to take a look at it I can try to pre-configure it for you.

I've used the scripts for some time, but I had a problem in the tail of
Tru64 (the system used by the customer at the time).
