Email Alerts for Kippo


Using CentOS 6

I'm wondering if there is an email alert program out there that I can setup to notify me when a log file is added to the log directory....Basically I want to know when an attempt is made on the server and kippo is logging it. That way I know how often and real time when it does happen. I don't like logwatch...not very user friendly on modifying. Any other ideas?

I'd say cobble something together using inotify tools and, since you "don't like" Logwatch, 'grep|mail'.
