Gents,
I am looking for a bash script which will search for ERROR CODES listed and return them. I can then use this script thru NAGIOS to carry periodical checks and raise alerts.

Log file examples :

Websphere log will contain entries like below:
ADMU3002E: Exception attempting to process server dmgr

ADMU####X
Where: #### = a unique number
X = Severity level (I = Informational, A = Alert, F = Fatal ?, E = Error, W = Warning)

Oracle log will have details as
Errors in file /u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/admin/PROD/bdump/PROD_arc1_3277.trc:
ORA-00308: cannot open archived log '/u06/oradata/PROD/arch/1_61541_684936861.arc'
ORA-27037: unable to obtain file status
Linux-x86_64 Error: 2: No such file or directory

Apache http log will have
[Tue Aug 17 12:10:54 2010] [notice] SSL0198W: System is running without a security library capable of directly rejecting  insecure SSL client renegotiation.  Aborting HTTPS requests that span SSL sessions
[Tue Aug 17 12:10:54 2010] [notice] SSL0198W: System is running without a security library capable of directly rejecting  insecure SSL client renegotiation.  Aborting HTTPS requests that span SSL sessions

Let's take an example Websphere , the script should set 2 array parameters at start

1. Name with full path of log files
LOGS[0]=/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/Profile01/Node01/logs/member1/systemout.log
LOGS[1]=/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/Profile01/Node01/logs/member2/systemout.log
LOGS[2]=/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/Profile01/Node01/logs/nodeagent/systemout.log
LOGS[4]=/opt/IBM/HTTPServer/logs/erorr_log....etc etc

Process Names :
LOGS[0] - NODE_1
LOGS[1] - NODE_2
LOGS[2] - DMGR
LOGS[3] - HTTP SERVER

2. Error Codes to look for
Error[0]=E
Error[1]=W
Error[2]=F

The script must return Process name + Line of error.

I hope I am not asking a lot. Many thanks in advance.
