LogDog monitors messages passing through syslogd and takes actions based on key words and phrases (which can be regular expressions). It has a configuration file which allows you to specify a list of key words or phrases to alert on and a list of commands that can be run when those words are encountered.

Release Notes: Several bash special characters are now escaped if they are found in the message. An -n option was added for no forking. The syslog() function was updated to log to the correct priority/facility. A new "stop" alert that causes logdog to stop processing further alerts was added. The configuration file was updated to reflect changes, and there are more examples in it.
Release Notes: The 2.0 series of Logdog is a complete rewrite. It no longer actually opens log files, but receives messages passing through syslogd in realtime. The configuration file has been completely redone and is now much more flexible.
Release Notes: Initial freshmeat announcement.
