Highlight and trigger an SMTP send

Good morning,

I've looked through the program feature set and perhaps I am missing it. Is there a way when a highlight rule matches a line, that could trigger an event to send a SMTP message? I monitor a lot of ColdFusion web applications on different computers and it would be handy to be notified by email when an error occurs (by matching a line in the exception.log file).

The simplest scenario would be to send the entire line that matched, but more useful would be to have capture groups in the regex string and be able to reference those groups in the sent email. In addition, each highlight rule would be could specify different credentials when connecting to the SMTP server. Out of curiosity, which regular expression search engine is used in Logfusion? I can't find any mention of it in the help.

Apologize if this is already a feature request, I searched the forums and didn't find anything.

I've added this to our feature request list. I'll be sure to let you know if/when we're able to implement it in a future version :)

Thanks!

I'd like to +1 for this suggestion as well. Our workstations are blocked from using port 25 to send e-mails, but we can relay through an internal mail server.

I'd love to see an even more generic highlight trigger ability where a highlight entry could execute any application possibly with information from the matched line as command line parameters. It would allow all sorts of automation. Thanks.

Added your vote and made the request more generic to allow for various actions on matched lines :)

Thanks!
