About

With Faiwatch you can evaluate your (daily) softupdate-logs, to see if everything went well. For example package updates, config updates or if the host has other problems.

A possible output could be:

# Faiwatch log #

Faiwatch consists of three files:

  • faiwatch (the main script - e.g. run it as a daily cronjob and mail the results to your mail address)
  • patterns (GNU grep extended regex for things you don't want to know about - maybe you need to to customize the file to fill in your needs, i.e. region or language)
  • ignore (hosts you don't want to know about)
