What tools can I use to monitor my Apache Log files and create alerts based on traffic. I need to:
- Get an alert when a spider that is outside of a defined list exceeds a set number of requests in any given day.
- Get an alert when traffic from a network outside of a defined list exceeds a set number of requests in any give week.
I can view this data in AWStats and Google Analytics but I want to set up automated alerts for this. I could hand roll some scripts but I thought their might be an existing solution. We are running on Linux/Apache/MySQL and an open source solution would be a plus.
