Using TCL/EEM to tweet SYSLOG events

Staying in the focus of the previous article, this is one of those really cool features, but possible something that you won’t easily use in production. Or maybe you would!

How about taking your routers syslog events and sending them to a twitter account. That way you can easily keep on heights when something in your network goes really wonky.Why would you want to do this?  To have a publicly accessable syslog replacement, or just because you can!

Bruno Klauser from Cisco wrote a TCL script using EEM to tweet routers syslog messages to a twitter account.  Here is an example of one tweeting router:  EASyDMI.

If you want to use this or give it a try, download the script at Cisco Land, and see my post on how to configure this.
