Monitors a given log file, reporting the rate of occurrences of a provided term. Logwatcher is a perfect plugin for error tracking.

For example, you have a web application that occasionally generates an error and you log these errors to a file. Let’s say you precede the error info with [Error]. So, an error might look like this:

[Error] Bats in the belfry

To track the rate of errors you just need to install the Logwatcher plugin and provide the following options:

log_path: /var/log/app.log term: "[Error]"


Plugin support or troubleshooting assistance is provided by Railsware.
