    Yes mcdarren, your right i need some sort of logic in such a way that for every time i run the script the execution starts from the beggining of the file and if suppose i got the error messages twice and when this script runs then on seeing the first error it immediately sends an alert and it will not go to the second error message every time. That means for the first error message it self the alert gets delivered everytime. Also i am trying to work this script on the windows environment. The script should identify the latest recorded entry in the log file. For every time i run the script it should not begin from the beginning of the log file. So it should identify the string from the lastest entered data in the log file. I hope this info helps for you to suggest me.
      (Please try to write in shorter sentences, and use paragraphs. I find it quite hard to read and understand your postings).

      So, have you written a script yet? If yes, and you want hints for improvements, show us your script. If not, start by writing a script that mostly works, and then gradually improve it to do what you want.

        Script to find a string from a active log file. I need to search this entry from the log file" Uncaught Run time exception" I want to run the script for every 10 min and the script should be able to find the given string in that 10 min of interval
