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 Checkmk 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.
