        },
    }
}

Don’t forget to create the tables for your database

./manage.py syncdb alogator
# python manage.py migrate

Usage

Setup your logfiles, search patterns and actors in the admin backend.

To run one (scan all logfiles for patterns) just call the scanlogfiles management command.

python manage.py scanlogfiles

You can use alogator_cli to check the log files in a project. Simple add paths to settings files as arguments. Be aware that you have to run the project, so you need to first activate your virtualenv if you have one.

# if you have a virtualenv
. /path/to/env/bin/activate

alogator_cli /path/to/project/settings.py

To run this continously you could setup a cronjob. For example, to run this every other minute use

crontab -e

Than add

*/2 * * * * /path/to/your/manage.py scanlogfiles

You may have to activate your virtualenv depending on your setup.

TODO

  • Customizable temporary working dir instead of /tmp
  • Customizable subject, eg. [Alogator] (to filter inbox)
  • Add “To mute this actor, visit…” in message/email.
