Forward Logwatch Messages to the Event Console

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: Linux, Windows, AIX, Solaris

This check processes the output of agents with the logwatch plugin. The windows agent has built in this extension. Per default this check forwards any data to the Check_MK Event Console. With additional configuration the messages can be reclassified to a different state via logwatch patterns before they are forwarded to the Event Console.


One service "Log Forwarding" is created on each host when the option logwatch_forward_to_ec is set to True.
