This will execute an external program whenever a message is received which passes the filters set above.
Details of the message and other Syslog statistics can be passed to the external program as command-line arguments.
Specify the external program filename by filling in the Program file name field or press the "" browse button to browse for a program.
Specify the command line options you would like to pass to the program in the Command line options field. Press the "?" button to see syntax for passing message details and Syslog statistics to the external program.
Insert message content or counter
To pass program variables, counters, script fields and statistics to the external program, click on the Insert message content or counter link and choose an option from the popup menu. More details on the values can be found here.
This option allows you to choose a variable from a popup menu. The variable is then replaced with the current value before the program is run. For example %MsgText is replaced with the text of the current syslog message. Just position your cursor in the command line options text line and click the hyperlink. A popup menu will be displayed so you can choose the variable you want.
Example command line options:
"555-1234", "Syslog - A link has gone down - %MsgAll"
Or: "Warning, message received from host %MsgHost at %MsgTime"
