Thank you for all your replies Martin, this is exactly what I was
missing and the root of my problems :)

One last question:

Is it possible to monitor one log file but alert different people
depending on matches....

In english then something like:

If match "ERROR" then alert $person_A
If match "WARN" then alert $person_B

Thanks again
