Intrusion Detection Systems, Part IV: Logcheck
At every 15-minute interval, Logcheck will read the freshly appended part of your log files and grep it for any intrusions as per the keywords that it is looking out for. In case of any alerts, Logcheck immediately composes a mail to root (root@localhost) with a complete report of the findings. So, make sure your internal SMTP service is running file.
