( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Thank you so much for responding ... I'll try to work on it this weekend to convert from bash to perl. And good call with the log rotating. :) If anyone is interested, here is my bash script:
#!/bin/bash string="connection_input: conn=11" tail -n 0 -F /var/log/ldap.log | \ while read LINE do echo "$LINE" | grep -q $string if [ $? = 0 ] then echo -e "$string found on $HOSTNAME" | mail -s "LDAP authentication on + $(hostname)" fi done
But I have to start it with a no hangup script
#!/bin/bash nohup ./ 0<&- &>/dev/null &

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
