Using Net::Jabber to Monitor ftpd

[ #7733 ]

A critical component of our video production is the posting of HTML materials with each online video. We've been having trouble with the ftp server (firewall issues, RAID issues), so I've been spending too much time staring at the syslog ftpd log. Particularly confusing sorting out who's who as different production operators hit ftp server at once.

So my brilliant idea of the day was to create a Jabber client to monitor the log file. Everytime a new ftpd session is created, create a chatroom and push the log entries for that session into the chatroom. Then have Jabber announce to me each session as it starts, and then I'll go peek in the chatroom if interested.
