I'm running centos 6 server with monit-5.14-1.el6.i686 and I want
monit to send a small custom email when it finds a match in a log file, I'm
using mailx and having difficulty with the correct syntax. I have this command
check file <filename> with path /path/to/log/file
if match "<text string>" then
echo "<email message body here>"| mailx -s "<email subject
line>" <email address here>"
but this doesn't work, when restarting monit I get:
Starting monit: /etc/monit.conf:51: syntax error 'echo'.
I know I could use 'if match "<text string>" then alert' but I'd
rather use my own custom message,
I know I could create a little bash script and execute that but it seems a
long way round to do such a small thing. Can monit do this and if so what is the
