> How can I do to receive by email each error recorded in the log ?
You can't do it for the catalog error log, but for the system error.log
Interchange has syslog() capability.
Syslog command logger
You can use syslog(8) to direct messages to specific machines, and
you can send them to a fifo as Stefan suggested. But if you change
the command, you could mail it yourself. This is NOT recommended,
but here goes.
You set up this script and call it /usr/local/bin/mailerror:
my $flags = join " ", @ARGV;
use vars qw/$opt_p $opt_t $opt_u/;
my $subject = "Interchange error: $flags";
my $to = $opt_t || 'root';
my $from = 'interch at localhost';
my $body = <>;
my $msg = <<EOF;
From: Interchange error mailer <$from>
open MAIL, "| /usr/sbin/sendmail -t" or die "Cannot fork: $!\n";
print MAIL $msg;
And put this in interchange.cfg:
Syslog command /usr/local/bin/mailerror
Syslog tag xavier at somwhere.com
It should work.
