Re: notification through email

Hi,

What you can do i write a script. The script must monitor the syslog file ( tail -f ) and send an e-mail when a package stops/starts. You can also add a line in the costumer_defined_run_cmds and halt_cmds. mailx -s "package starts at $(date)" @email@domain.com

HTH,

You can enter a command like "mailx" in the user_defined_run_commands or user_defined_stop_commands portion of a standard service guard package.

Best regards,

Re: notification through email

Absolutely, see above messages. However, is not reccommended to alert anything by e-mail even though we all do it.
