logmon alert when a pattern is NOT found.

    Is there a way to setup a watcher to alarm if a string is NOT found?  We currently utilize a script to parse logs for strings, and one of the alarm methods is to search for a certain number of instances of a string in the past 10 minutes of log activity and send an alarm if they are not present in the log.

    No unfortunately there is currently no way to do this.

    Although someone claimed to have made it work in some manner though using cat mode - see here...but this isnt supported by logmon out of the box as far as I know or have tested.
