Release Notes: More options have migrated from the configuration file to the commandline. A bug has been fixed, so very large files can now be handled. The new macros $CL_PROTOCOLFILE$ and $CL_SERVICEPERFDATA$ have been added.
Release Notes: A bug in the sticky code was fixed. With the new savethresholdcount option, you can decide whether counters should be persistent or start from zero for each run.
Release Notes: Templates are a new kind of tag which can be set at runtime. This feature relieves you from configuring the same search for every single hostname. Support for bzip2 archives was added. A scriptparam bug was fixed. Threshold counters are inherited from the last run.
Release Notes: New category okpatterns can reset error messages found during the scan so far. A critical pattern found in a logfile can stay persistent during successive runs of the plugin, until it is cleared by an okpattern or a timeout. A new type, "errpt", allows scanning of AIX errpt output instead of a real file. Some bugs with supersmart postscript output were fixed.
Release Notes: "Virtual" files like those in the Linux /proc and /sys filesystems are supported. With this feature, simple hardware monitoring can easily be set up. Some smaller bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: Prescripts and postscripts which produce no output of their own are now supported. This is important if you run "setfacl" as a prescript under Linux. There are new examples.
Release Notes: Scripts can now be embedded Perl code references. Scripts can be declared as smart or supersmart, so their exitcode influences the overall result of the plugin.
Release Notes: The missing configuration script winconfig.pl is now included. A small bug breaking self-defined rotations has been fixed.
Release Notes: This release adds support for native Windows with ActiveState Perl. It adds the --selectedsearches Option. mod_log_rotate has been added to the predefined rotation methods.
Release Notes: A complete code redesign was undertaken. The main functionality was moved into a Perl module. Output of performance data was added along with official support for non-rotating logfiles. Lots of bugs and performance bottlenecks were fixed.
