NAME

SyslogScan::SendmailLine -- Enhances basic SyslogEntry parsing by understanding sendmail to/from message syntax.

CONTENTS

DESCRIPTION

Suppose I run a ’new SyslogEntry’ command and read in the following line:

Jun 13 01:32:26 satellife sendmail[23498]: WAA18677: to=bar@foo.org,baz@foo.org, delay=03:50:20, mailer=smtp, relay=relay.ulthar.com [128.206.5.3], stat=Sent (May, have (embedded, commas))

If I have not loaded in SendmailLine, then ’new SyslogEntry’ will return an ’UnsupportedEntry’ object looking like this:



 month => Jun,
 day => 13,
 time => 01:32:26,
 machine => satellife,
 executable => sendmail,
 tag => 23498,
 content => WAA18677: to=bar@foo.org,baz@foo.org, delay=03:50:20, ...



On the other hand, if I have a ’use SyslogScan::SendmailLine’ command before my call to ’new SyslogEntry’, then I will a ’SendmailLine’ object with all of the above parameters, plus the following additional parameters:



 messageID => WAA18677
 toList => ( bar@foo.org, baz@foo.org )
 attrHash => ( to => "bar@foo.org,baz@foo.org",
             delay => "03:50:20",
             mailer => "smtp",
             relay => "relay.ulthar.com [128.206.5.3]",
             stat => "Sent (May, have (embedded, commas))"
             )



Also well-supported is the ’From’ line:

Jun 13 01:34:54 satellife sendmail[26035]: BAA26035: from=<bar!baz!foo>, size=7000, class=0, pri=37000, nrcpts=1, msgid=<199606130634.BAA26035@satellife.healthnet.org>, proto=SMTP, relay=uth.bar.com [155.247.14.2]

will produce a SendmailLine object with the additional attributes of



 messageID => BAA26035
 attrHash => ( from => "<bar!baz!foo>",
             size => "7000",
             class => "0",
             pri => "37000"
             nrcpts => "1",
             msgid => "<199606130634.BAA26035@satellife.healthnet.org>",
             proto => "SMTP",
             relay => "uth.bar.com [155.247.14.2]"
             )



Other types of lines are legal, but are not currently very thorougly parsed, and therefore return somewhat minimal SendmailLine objects.

Jun 13 13:05:35 satellife sendmail[19620]: NAA19606: NAA19620: return to sender: unknown mailer error 2

will return a SendmailLine object with the usual SyslogEntry attributes, plus the single additional attribute of

messageID => NAA19606

while lines like the following produce SendmailLine objects with no additional SendmailLine-specific attributes:

Jun 13 03:00:05 satellife sendmail[26611]: alias database /var/yp/nis.healthnet.org/mail.aliases rebuilt by root

Note this is a subclass for SyslogScan::SyslogEntry which handles certain types of logfile lines. See the documentation for SyslogEntry for further details of how SyslogEntry subclassing works.

Also, see the SyslogScan::SendmailLineFrom and SyslogScan::SendmailLineTo modules for examples of returned SendmailLine objects.
