swatch: A simple syslog monitoring utility/daemon watchdog1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0]

Swatch was originally written to actively monitor messages as they were written to a log file via the UNIX syslog utility. It has multiple methods of alarming, both visually and by triggering events. The perfect tools for a master loghost. It is known to work flawlessly on Linux (RH5), BSDI, and Solaris 2. 6 (patched).
