A tool to get notified on error messages in the systemd journal

Project description

journalwatch is a tool which can find error messages in the systemd journal.

It is similiar to tools like logwatch/logcheck except it’s much more KISS and only works with the systemd journal. It works by defining patterns to match all log lines which are not interesting, and then prints all log lines not matching those patterns (or sends them by mail).

When you start it the first time, it’ll write the default pattern and config to $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/.config/journalwatch ($XDG_CONFIG_HOME is your home if unset). Details on how to configure journalwatch are available in these files.
