syslogs

Hi HP-UX experts

As system administrator, we need to look at syslog.log on a daily basis to check for any abnormalities on the server. Are there scripts written to check for these abnormalities rather than we need to check it daily?

Re: syslogs

I suppose ur customer should have installed some monitoring softwares which would alert you in case of any issue, like Openview,remedy etc.

Well as such there is no script to check the error, but you can write one just do a 'grep -v' for the normal alerts you see daily and get everything else on your mail in the morning (mailx) as a nice breakfast :)

Re: syslogs

Probably the best idea would be to integrate the servers via SFM into HP SIM.

Hope this helps!

Re: syslogs

Looks like you need "health check script"
Its always recommended to have "Monitoring Software products" to monitor your servers 24/7 send email & SMS alerts to "Sys Admin".

Best Choices.

HP - Open view, BMC - partol,Big brother so many ..etc.

Re: syslogs

A quick and dirty way to do this might be to write a very simple script that goes out and greps for certain words (lbolt, warn, fail...etc) in the syslog.log file and then emails that line as an alert to you.

You might even centralize all your syslogs to send certain kind of messages to one central server by editing your /etc/syslog.conf and that way you could use that simple script to check from one place.

Just a quick thought,
