I'm working on a custom real-time log parser for a few of my systems (written in Perl). Basically, it tails a log file, ignores some messages, inserts others into a database on a remote host, and performs custom actions based on other messages.
The "last message repeated x
times" messages are really messing with my ability to parse messages.
I'm using msyslog
on the systems. Does anybody know of a way to disable this behavior? Whether it's some hidden config switch or a source code patch, or anything - I'm willing to try it.
