     Re: up/down report generator

Hello All,

I've written an up/down NOCOL report generator for use
here with following usage:

 usage: nocolr [-a|-d Mon date] [-t] [-w] [-l Level] [-f log_file]
    -a           report about all days
    -d Mon date  report about a specific day
    -t           report with no header (terse)
    -l Level     report about a specific severity level
    -f log_file  use nocol log named "log_file"
    -h           do html table output

See enclosed example output.  (Yes, I'm working on putting
sendmail 8.9.1 into production! =:)  

This allows our "netconsole" to have today's up/down report in
it's message pane via a simple crontab entry.  And ditto for
our customized web interface.

If you'd like this report generator, send me a message directly
and I'll follow up to this list in a week or so.

Assuming folk want this type report, I'd like to ask this list
for opinions about some thorny issues re deriving that data
that's displayed here.  After they are ironed out, I'll post
the source.
