[App_rpt-users] Any log watch experts out there?

I don't specifically add my Allstar activity to logwatch, but several of my 
scripts report to /var/log/asterisk/connectlog. You could always use 
logrotate, and add a cron to email yourself the day's log.

Another option might be to use my email_status script, and modify it to 
email once per day, rather than on each connect/disconnect.

My scripts can all be found here:
www.qsl.net/k0kn/scripts.html

Personally, I like to have email_status send an email to my cell phone's 
"text" address, so I get a text message on connects and disconnects. Some 
folks don't have unlimited texting, and use email instead. You can also 
enable inbound control of your Allstar node via text or email. I find that 
useful for non-critical control of my nodes.

Here's what the "standard" output looks like. The number 7 refers to the 
number of connected nodes (directly and indirectly)

[app_rpt node 2210]
2210 Disconnected from Allstar 27827 [7]
27827 KC0EFC Hub KC0EFC Lenexa, Ks

And here is the "extended info" that includes the connected node numbers, 
and whether the nodes are Connecting, Transceive, or Receive-only:

[app_rpt node 2212]
2212 Connected to Allstar 2210 [17]
2210 Kansas Super Hub K0KN Olathe, KS
T2210, T2216, T2217, T2218, T27823, T27827, T28406, T28501
T28686, T28818, T28934, T29144, T29145, T29216, T29275, T29368
T29414


Here's an excerpt of my connectlog:

Anyone have any info on getting logwatch to report AllStar activity, 
connections, etc?
