shush

runs a command and optionally reports its output by mail

Description

shush was written to be a generic wrapper around cron jobs so that it can be applied to any command without having to modify it or create a custom wrapper for it. In a sense, it solves a fairly simple problem, but it also brings some powerful features making it a useful tool beyond cron jobs.

Feature highlights:

  * Multiple reports (for the output) may be defined
  * Decision to send a report (or not) is configurable based on:
    - Output content analysis (using regular expressions)
    - Command exit code
    - Size of output
    - Command execution duration
  * Support for plain text, enriched text and HTML report formatting.
    (The latter two allow rendering part of the output in bold.)
  * Various timeout actions such as notification and command termination
  * Locking support
  * Progress report logging via syslog
  * Automatic crontab file updating based on shush's configuration
