Okay, is it automatically done when you compile Nagios with embedded
perl support?

This it what I assumed ...

My Netsaint/Nagios host becomes the local loghost, where every
syslogable machine will log to, and that's a lot. I use MySQL for
storing all the syslog stuff, and now I use Nagios for analysing
what's going on. The idea is to have a plugin for cross-checking the
database for words like "refused" "error" and all the bad things which
happens every day, and returning Warning or Critical when it is found.
For this I need a plugin.

For the cgi/web interface I will build something like showlog.cgi
together with histogram.cgi, but that's still for away.

Thanks for answering, also Chet Luther who suggested using mod_perl.
I will think about.
