my-swatch pretends to be an implementation of msyslog and swatch together. What it pretends to accomplish is put all together, to log events to a remote database (like msyslog) and to awake triggers (like swatch).


I would like to give some background on why this project started. I was using swatch for quite a long time with some problems that it seemed no one else had and couldn't help me solve it. It wasn't critical so i kept using it, later in my sys admin life i tryed to gather all my syslog events on a database. I was getting a bit too much of garbage, i tryed to tune it but garbage kept coming.

So the idea of doing something that could solve both my problems came around and i started coding a my-swatch in perl.

If you never had this kind of trouble before i suggest you don't try my-swatch. The swatch software is much more tested than this piece of code and i guess it makes it more reliable.

my-swatch is working for me, which doesn't mean it works for you. But if you want to give it a try i would love to have some feedback.
