Hi All,

Is there any software tool which detects errors in the server logs and notifies us :

for example :

If there is any server (application/webserver) error thrown in the logs it should notify us so we can rectify it before any user's get affected by it.
This software should be able to detect any error messages which we anticipate sometimes and should notify us.

Is there anything which I could download ?

Thanks,

There are many 3rd party products (Tivoli, for example) to do this kind of thing. Many of them use SNMP, and there are good Java libraries in the public domain for interacting with SNMP.

"System logs" are, by definition, OS-dependent. Here's an article on using the built-in Windows tools that interact with the Windows Event Log (and other WMI event sources):

We were using Big Brother with good effect until CA sold us Unicenter.

For commercial use, BB costs, but I think it's relatively inexpensive.
