Get notified (only) when your server needs your attention
To maintain any kind of server efficiently, LogMonitor allows you to get quickly notified when the server needs your immediate attention and NOT notified about things that are not important to you.
Watch FileMaker Server
FileMaker Server used to have the option to send e-mail notifications about errors and warnings. Version 17 removed the option for warning notifications. With LogMonitor you get this feature back in an even more flexible alternative. You can get notified even about scripting errors if they are important for you.
Watch other server apps
LogMonitor lets you define multiple different log files to monitor and different patterns to look for in the logs, so you can use it to monitor any app that logs important events to a readable text file. LogMonitor is even able to handle log rolling, as long as you can define name pattern for the log files.
Get notified fast via push notifications
In addition to sending e-mails, LogMonitor can send push notifications to your smart phone via Pushover. You can enable push notifications separately for each pattern, so you can get push notifications for urgent issues and only e-mail notifications about things that do not require immediate attention.
Get notified, not spammed
LogMonitor does not send an e-mail and push notification for every single log entry that matches your pattern. Instead, it sends a single notification as a digest of all issues it has discovered since last check, sorted by importance.
