Advanced alerts: Based on the frequency of a particular syslog message

Problem:

It is important to know that some event happens too often. And vice versa, there is no notification about the events that must occur with known frequency.


Solution:

Add frequency-base alerts to Syslog Watcher. 

  • Generate an alert if a particular syslog message comes too often
  • Generate an alert if a particular syslog message does not arrive within a given period


Based on customer's feature request:

I'd like to set up an alert but only when a given entry shows up repeatedly in a short time, like a bot is banging on some port. How would I set criteria for how many hits in how short a time triggers an alert? Thanks.
