Maybe you can build a script that further processes the output of innotop.  I haven't tried its non-interactive option but the documentation says its output can be further processed by other scripts.  You can check out the documentation at http://innotop.googlecode.com/svn/html/index.html

no the problem is different..

Semaphore and dead lock will only aprear on the output if it happend

just normal output capture will not work

Yes that means you need to run innotop over and over again in a loop.  If you build your own script you will need to call show engine innodb status over and over again too, so it's practically the same thing though with less overhead since you'll be querying mysql directly.

Or maybe you can browse the code of innotop and see how it parses for locks and semaphore occurances.  Think I'll have time to look at it later (you got me curious)
