    SysLog alerting

    EricGuth

      I have a VPN appliance that keeps going down from time to time, but still responded to ping and nothing in the event log says why it goes down; I'm still working with the vendor on figure out why it keeps going down, but until it's resolved I need to know when it goes down and not by my boss calling me 3 hours later saying he can't get into the VPN.  

      So what I've came up with is to do a syslog alert only if I don't get an event from the appliance for 30 minutes (I’ve looked at the logs and there is a cleanup service that runs every 5 to 10 minutes) so if I don’t get an event send me a page, If I get some false pages that’s fine..

      Any idea on how to do this?
